The kitchen looks great now!

I added several things to the living room - a rug, an afghan and flames and embers for the fire. The rug is a blown up picture from a catalog. I printed it on cotton fiber paper.
Here are the pieces I used for the cabinets. I had some rubber stamps that were given to me that I wasn't interested in. (I love stamping but these were categories I wouldn't use.)
And here it is. The fridge and stove paper parts I salvaged from the rejected kitchen. The upper cupboards are just held on to a book cover with some sticky wax so that's why they aren't hanging straight. Each piece is separate so I will have options for laying out the kitchen. My favorite things are the double sink and faucet and the range hood. The stamp block has a dip for a finger grip on the top edge. I used a large craft stick for the counters and I put two holes in for the sinks. The dip and the edges of the hole were painted silver. The hardest part of the range hood was the angles - I kept looking at mine to figure it out. There's even a mesh fan grate inside. The doors are cut from regular and wide craft sticks with bead knobs.

I am so happy that I decided to try the wood. I'm also thankful for God's inspiration in using the stamp blocks.

De- what wonderful work- they look fantastic! I think I agree- you will love the kitchen more because you changed to the wood to match the rest of the furniture you've done such a wonderful job on. I really can't wait till you get the house and it's not even my present!
