A worn-out IKEA kitchen desperately needed a make-over. The beech wood top was rotting and the general layout looked kind of sloppy. So instead of replacing the entire kitchen I chose to renew the run-down parts and keep the good parts. By doing so we could get an almost new and sustainable kitchen for a very modest price. The slim, plastic top is new as well as the okoume plywood back wall, the fronts and upper cupboards. The wooden okoume plywood is finshed with several layers of matte varnish to maintain its natural look. Also some small changes were made in the layout so the kitchen would not only look better but be more practical as well.
