When you can't find what you want...

...sometimes you've just got to make it yourself. I couldn't find a printie for a refrigerator I liked. I also couldn't find any for white cabinets. The solution was to download photos of the real things and turn them into half scale printies. They are far from perfect but I got just the look I wanted so I'm happy. Plus they look more realistic than purchased ones (except they don't open) and I spent less than a dollar rather than the $20 the purchased set would have cost me.

Haha! Clever solution! The stove looks especially convincing.

So pretty! I don't understand how you did this, but it looks GREAT!

The stove is from www.printmini.com. I just embellished it. The cabinets and refrigerator are my design.

Kathi, I will see if I can transfer the printie images to blogger. The program I used is not always cooperative, lol.
