ikea hacker

i ran across this adorable and creative play kitchen today and had to post about it. i adore this and i know mackenzie would go crazy for it. where to buy it? you can't. but you can make it! it's constructed from a simple piece of ikea furniture and you can find the steps here.
the original piece she bought from ikea

the finished product has shelves filled with food and the oven lights up!

while reading about this project i came across a fun, hour waster of a site called ikea hacker. it's filled with, yep you guessed it, ikea furniture that people have have altered (or hacked) and submitted to this site. it has how-to's and lots of great inspirations. i know i have some ikea stuff sitting around that could be gussied up.
