Just over a year ago I posted how I had made a little roombox to replace my mother's little kitchen. The post. And here's the picture I had taken of it before I sent it to my mother.
I must have made it around 17 years ago. I hadn't had much experience with miniatures then.
Over time the little kitchen got pretty dusty, and after mama died I brought it home in my suitcase, wherein it met with a little rough treatment. The kitchen table collapsed, and the hood over the stove broke.
Today I did a bit of a cleanup, and glued the stove hood back together.
By the way, I have no idea how I came to have some grooved MDF for a dollhouse floor.
The kitchen was meant to be reminiscent of old Lithuanian cottage kitchens, in traditional log homes. Whether or not it's a good representation, I'm not truly sure. I did as much research as I could, and my mother said it reminded her of home, so it must be close enough.
Here's a closeup of my logs.
Here's the stove. The hood had some plates glued to it, I'll have to put them back, and maybe give it a new coat of paint. The front panel of the hood cracked. I thought about making a replacement piece, but decided against it, and just make repairs.
The hutch is one from Michael's. I guess we had a Michael's where I used to live 17 years ago. That or some other store was selling them too.
The basket holds a bunch on tiny silk roses, since mama liked flowers. I filled the other half with a couple kinds of potatoes and carrots, made from Sculpey. I touched them up with paint to color them.
