Feeling better and a project in progress

Thanks again for all of the get well wishes. I am already feeling better and hope to be back to normal (or as normal as I get, lol) within a couple of days.

I'm still working on the dollhouse for my friend's nieces. The kitchen in the house is really tiny so I'm converting a couple of Michael's hutches into the appliances. The double door cabinet is going to become a refrigerator with double doors and a freezer drawer below. I removed the legs and knobs. The other cabinet has been taken apart by microwaving it. The top half will basically stay the same. I just added a shelf to the bottom. I removed the legs from the bottom half, drilled out a sink hole and used the container my daughter's contacts come in for the sink. The cabinet door on the right will become the oven, with an oven style handle. The top on the right will have a cooktop with button burners. The shallow hutches will help with playing room in such a tiny room.

Your stove and sink look great! Sure wish I could get my hands on one of those Michael's hutches. There are none to be found here.
I'm making my own cabinets. How are doors on the Michael's cabinets installed?? Did they use pins perhaps?
Can't wait to see your tiny kitchen!
You are so creative!

I like what you have done already!
I can't wait to see what your going to do next, De!

De- you area genius. I am constantly learning new tricks from you. I am glad to hear you are feeling better :)

Thanks, everyone! Kathi, they are pin hinged. I've used pin hinges in things I've made, too, and it works well.
