I bought a kit for some upper cabinets as I didn't care for the ones that came with the second hand stove and sink that I purchased. Elf Miniatures has some awesome kits and that's where I got the cabinet kit.
I also just purchased a sink and faucet from them but they haven't arrived yet. I'm planning to upgrade the sink I purchased.
Here are the cabinets from the kit.
|I haven't put the varnish on them yet.|
I also changed the handles on the drawers, oven and cabinets I had already. And below you can see where I took out the cheap little sink.
|They aren't perfect but they're pretty good.|
|It's not nearly as bright as it could be and I like the pop of color it gives the kitchen.|
|Here it is taped together so the glue will set.|
|I want to use it as a sort of breakfast bar with the stools I bought.|
I also started to work on the stove and 'tile' backsplash.
I had some dark brown textured scrapbook paper that just needed some dry brushing with copper paint to pass for tile.
|It's just bright enough to gleam but not take over.|
|See? I like how that looks. I'll put some dark brown paint to hide the little gaps.|
|See? It won't clash with the bright green but its not off white either. It'll look nice with the tile.|
|the green is nice and neutral, just like the wallpaper.|
So I put the cabinets on the walls. I think they turned out pretty well.
|I like how they look... pretty good right?|
|This is a good one of the stove backer too.|
So now I need to make a little filler for between the top of the cabinets and the ceiling. I really don't want a lot of empty space up there. I don't like how it looks. I'd put cabinets if I thought I could make some. I also need a place to attach the vent/fan for over the stove.
I'll do pictures of that when that part is done. It's also another place to hide wiring which I really need.
The other thing I did was make towels for the half bath. I had some soft thin flannel in pale lime green and cut it into towel sized pieces, folding and rolling so they filled the shelves. If I can find a little basket I might put extra soap or lotion bottles on one shelf instead.
|I'm a little sad the dots don't show too well on the white towels. They're pink and green.|
See you later!
