DIY Kids Kitchen Grocery Market Play Place under $40 - VARIERA IKEA HACK
I wanted to create a fun space for kids coming over to play out our house, and of course I wanted a play kitchen. However, when I started pricing grocery markets and play set-ups they sure were $$$. Not to mention easy to just dump out on the ground. So I came up with this fun hack. Hope you enjoy!
Items needed to complete
6 x VARIERA (box) $2.79 - https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/variera-box-green-00332014/
2 x FINTORP (31" rod) $6.99 - https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/fintorp-rail-black-00201904/
3 x FINTORP (hooks) $2.79/5 pack - https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/fintorp-hook-black-40201902/
Drill & 1/4" drill but
Step 1 - Mark bins
Nothing fancy here. Just use the bin and a marker and draw a line. Makes it easier than measuring a messing up. Makes a nice clean line.
Step 2 - Drill Holes
Drill a hole on each end in the middle of the line. Warning - learn from my mistake. You need them close to the edge so you can get the hook in place. Below, you see I didn't on one so I just drilled a second hole.
Step 3 - Hang rod on wall
Make sure you use strong screws as kids love to pull on these. I used a level to make them stright but you can always eyeball this too
Step 4 - Put on baskets
Don't forget to put the baskets on the rod before you screw in the second side. I put the whole thing on the wall and had to remove one side :)
