Hey, it really looks like a diner!

I had a slight change of plans. The wallpaper I found online would not print clearly so I used a tone on tone scrapbook paper instead. I used the envelope liners to make a tiled floor. I had several different patterns in black and white. I love how it turned out.

The light is an LED one that hubby and I found at a ham radio fest. I find a lot of useful mini tools and supplies at those. It looks a bit retro and lights up the kitchen really well.

I'm not finished yet. I still need a soda fountain and condiments. There are other things, too, but those are the most important.

Please notice that the back splash for the grill is covered in splattered grease. Thanks for the idea, ladies.

I've been able to make so many items for this room with found objects. That's one of my favorite things to do - see something I like in mini or real size and try to figure out how to make it with what I have on hand.
