Base cabinet is finished!


The kitchen is starting to look like a kitchen now. The base cabinet is finished and I couldn't resist accessorizing for the photo. There are a lot of gifts from some very talented friends on display.


I made the "stone" countertop with scrapbook paper and Mod Podge (what did the world do before Mod Podge?). I used a silver paint pen to make my sink "stainless steel" and I had to repaint the faucet, too. It had discolored over the years. Parts of this kitchen kit are going to be very challenging because pieces have fallen out of their numbered wood sheets and are lying loose in the box. Took me forever just to find one cabinet door today. There's also some warping which adds to the challenge but what is life without challenges?!

It's looking great! I think the pineapple canisters look great on the counter. :-) The countertop itself looks fantastic!

Thanks, Kat. I was so happy with the finished product that I just sat and stared at it forever. ;0)

It look amazing De! Never thought of using scrapbook paper to cover counters before...that's a good idea! Love all the stuff on the top...the apple cookie jar and the bananas are really neat! Love them pineapples, too!! And look, you even have a clock. Can't wait to see the rest of it!

De, the kitchen is looking fantastic!!! Love the counter-top too. I have some similar scrapbooking paper that now that you have given me the idea, will be fabulous for the quilt shop/sewing room I want to make for my mom! Thanks for the inspiration!

At first I didn't realize this was a miniature kitchen! I'm impressed at your use of Mod Podge, very cool.

Thank you! That is one of the highest compliments you can pay a miniaturist. :0)
