It's supposed to look like a modern day house that's a bit run down, country looking with lots of vintage touches. The table was a kit from a magazine series but I made my own top for it.
I built all the kitchen units, the house came with a sink unit I didn't like, but I managed to prise the white sink off the top of it and use on the bench I made. I found a pattern in a book for the units and made them almost like the instructions said. It was the first time I had cut anything out and made it all by myself. Then I built the wall shelf all by myself!! No pattern, no instructions - sometimes I surprise myself with what I can do! I cut out the bits at our monthly club meeting, that's one of the good things about belonging to a club - they have all the power tools.I haven't made drawers because I thought I would make baskets to go in there, just have to figure out how to make them.
The dresser was an old one I painted and papered to match everything else, not sure I like it, it looks a bit too chunky.
I don't have the house here at the moment, it's still at a friends house as she is helping me the wiring (and the chimney). And now I've looked at these pictures I'm really missing it.
Now I need your help!
Can anyone out there tell me where I can find a website to buy a nice fridge and stove, or tell me a brand name to look for. I want them to look as real as possible without being too expensive. Or find a pattern to make a fridge or stove.
Our club is having it's next show at the end of May and I really want the house to be ready to exhibit by then.
And thank you for all the get well wishes for Liberty. She seems quite a bit better today. She asked for ham and cheese sandwiches at 6am this morning and she ate them!
