Wish me luck

I have been drooling over a premade Victorian kitchen for months, but even with 40% off I could not bring myself to spend that kind of money. Instead, for under $25.00 I purchase 5 1970s House of Miniature kits and plan on building my own. Please wish me luck.

False stairway

My $5.00 box from Michaels and some odds and ends will make a pretty good addition to the pub kitchen.

False Hallway - Getting Started

I am currently working on a "false" hallway for the kitchen.  The pub will have two cooking areas; the downstairs prep kitchen and the upstairs plating area.  I am building a false back for the downstairs kitchen, which will have stairs to the upper floor.  It is difficult to tell in the photo, but the staircase carpet looks so much better after I took a piece of sandpaper to it.  There are now holes where the steps will be and the color is faded.  It now matches the rustic look of the stucco hallway.  The walls are drying and I am itching to get this put together.  I hate waiting!

I tried my hand at tiny potatoes today. A pot is full and ready to put on to boil, but it looks like someone got tired of peeling!
