More new MINIS for the kitchen......


Didn't seem to get as much accomplished as I would have liked...but I had a good time designing and creating.

I shared my picnic-basket/suitcase (thrown together yesterday), today I  organized and placed it in the kitchen.

I was thinking I needed a chalk board someplace in the kitchen...oh, that empty space on the left of the hutch...perfect!.... this is what I came up with. 
 Wanna hear how silly I am? 
I thought "Oh I don't have any chalk board paint"....that could be a problem.
Then, I realized black paint would be just fine for the little one inch project I'd be making.

Isn't that just ridiculous?

I have to laugh at myself. 

Didn't wanted it to just "hang" on the wall...
I think you need as much depth and texture in these little rooms, with that said...

 digging through my old stuff I came across a pair of shutters.
  Bingo... perfect spot for it to hang.

Needed some cook books....

Grabbed the cardboard, cut into little squares, painted the edges, covered with wallpaper, then perused my magazines for little bitty words for the names of the books.


Easy peasy!

Don't they just make the counter?

Oh...see the little cupboard stuck in the corner?  I dug that out so my canisters had a home. 

The more minis the better....

Hope you had fun today.

Did you make anything new?

Have a fun evening.

  6. I'm exactly like you! I always think things have to be functional. I would have looked for chalk paint. Like a little doll knows how to write on chalkboards. LOL! I'm glad you are here to remind me to keep it simple and keep it fun. The books are fabulous too. I'm so glad you told how you made them. I want to make those for sure.
