One of this years summer projects was to "fix" a summer kitchen.
With some of the wood we had left from the front porch and some creative shopping in Ikea (we got the sink for 99 SEK and our favorite tap called Hjuvik for half the price) we got this little beauty up and running in a day.
We decided to hook up the tap to the outdoors summer water, so it is easy to disassemble in the winter and take the tap inside (not sure if the sink will stay outside) and with some creative connections, we transferred the 3/8" or R10 into a R15 connection that is safely secured to the summer waterhose (thanks to the nice lady at Bauhaus who helped us with this puzzle).
Cleaning fresh strawberries under the running water outside is a real treat and having an outdoor kitchen is much more as just a gimmick and really increases the outdoor experience.
So, how much did the outdoor summer kitchen cost (without the Weber, as that is albeit another story) ...
1.000 SEK for the Tap (the luxury element) 99 SEK for the Sink
Another 500 SEK for all the different water elements under the sink (in and out)
Some leftover wood and screws and a sunny afternoon.

Our Cricetinae or as we call him Zlatan has been living in the classic nightmare colorful cage, after the Ovo from Habitrail was completely eaten by Sir Lancelot. So although we did like the Ovo from a designer perspective, the cage did not stand the critter of time (or Sir Lancelot in this case) and has been ripped to pieces (idem diti for the original Zlatan cage as he managed to eat himself out of his first cage overnight).
So we have been looking for a large white designer cage to host our overactive Critecinae aka Hamster and did a few shops to scout for the right cage.
Today our collective eye fell for the below designer cage from Zoo also called Garby 60... and with all the black steel and glass tubes All the Way you have to admit this cage has all the looks it need ...
So, completed it took Zlatan by surprise.
We will post pictures later of Zlatan enjoying his cage and going completely wild on the black metal bars like a true pole dancer climbing the roof, but that is for the sequel ...
For now, we have found our designer cage for the wonderful hamster called Zlatan ...
What do you think about the cage ? Designer or not ?
