The Kitchen

I personally LOVE Toile fabrics and trimmings. We currently have some in a bathroom of ours and my daughter actually picked this out without knowing what it would be for (the wallpaper). So I took cream colored appliances and painted them all black. The cream color got too washed out. Every door and drawer are working even on the fridge! I glued scrapbooking foil embossed stickers to the ceiling (One is hanging on the back wall for you to see the detail), Silk ribbon trim for the trim and YES-REAL TILE for the floor. Can you believe they make it so tiny! It was very hard to work with because the dimensions were off by millimeters. I used stamped leather in black for the landing at the bottom of the stairs and for a rug by the sink. Fake food and pewter dishes and actual silverware (will have to take a pictures of that another time) for the kitchen. This room was by far my MOST favorite to do because of the floor. The wallpaper was the easiest of them all to work with and I just HAD to accessorize it with a mini "Suzie" dog just like my in-laws at their house. My Daughter loved it! We even found mini-coke cans and food that looked so amazingly real. I am so impressed with the artists who do this, I would surely go blind! Can you believe that the toaster actually has toast that pops up and down in it. Muffin tins and pots and pans as well as a wisk and other fun items makes this kitchen full of life. My daughter is so organized she insists on cleaning and putting everything away before she finishes playing with the kitchen...I LOVE it...now just to be sure she carrys over those habits into our real house HA! My husband told me just today he tried to play with her and help her clean up but she already had her way to do it and wouldn't let him even touch a thing. What a crackup! I had an extra Bombay dresser and couldn't find a hall coat tree or something to fit where it is so it looks a bit out of place but my daughter loves it and store her mini-chess and card games in it so it works for now. I hope you enjoy this room....I could move right in! Be sure to not miss the 4 mugs with our names on them I found for the room. My step-son Dallin's name was not found but my daughter calls him "D" so the single letter was just perfect! I plan on adding more to this room by way of little food and such, just found a small carton of milk and ice cream box that is a replica of Cream of Weber brand. I saw Reynolds wrap online the other day...what will they think of next!?! I have little curtains made for the window but like all the other rooms, I didn't have time to get them all up and so when I do I promise pictures!

BallerinaGurl said...

But of course you can live in it! LOL! Thanks so much sweetie for the kind remarks!

I love this layout too!! It was fresh and fun!

I have used the Pyzam template for over 3 years on my MySpace site and when I saw two other blogs with a similar look I decided to try and update it a bit again. It has one of the most creative lines...you should check them out! I also have another site that you can copy and paste into Photobucket and create your own template but it takes a long time for me to do and a lot of html....so I perfer ready-made templates! LOL

My friend Ali suggested this to me. Her blog looks amazing!!!

I ran across you at marmalade Gypsy and found this great doll house project of yours. It so reminds me of the doll house project my husband worked on years ago for our daughter. She is all grown now and we have great hopes that someday SHE will have a daughter who will enjoy the dollhouse grandpa made for her mom.
