Moving Along

I did some more work over the weekend on my kitchen cabinets and stove.  I also threw up some accessories around the kitchen (i.e.  boards on the wall and wallpaper) but I'm not sure how all that is going to come together.  I just wanted to give the photos a "homey" context.  :)


Everything is constructed from balsa or bass wood and matboard.  The drawer pulls are seed beads with straight pins attaching them and the sink fixtures are more jewelry findings and some picture hanging wire, painted black.  The drain in the sink is an old rivet I found in my stash of stuff.  The knobs on the oven are adhesive little "rhinestone" thingies from Michaels. I made the oven clock-control panel in Photoshop and printed it out on glossy paper.


My work is far from perfect.  My measuring leaves LOTS to be desired but for my first major construction project, I'm pleased and looking forward to getting better. This is just so much fun!


I'm planning to put a window above the sink so stay tuned . . . thank you for coming by.
