Success with the kitchen!

It is starting to look like a home...

But first about the kitchen - it worked out: no more metal sheeting left! I made both of them twice .. but I really wanted counter tops without scratches or dents..
Just wondered whether there is a foil that looks as good as real metal.. for next time.
The sink is from Evi because she is the only one that has them with the real stainless steel look.
It seems she uses some sort of metal covered styrene...





In case you are wondering where the extractor hood is: the latest development here is Bora!
In my next real life kitchen I definitely want one like that...

And I finally could show off Minifanaberia's dishwasher and Ikea racks on the walls! Yeah!!
And all the other treasures I found at the various fairs. Pots of course from Yukio Kaway in Tokyo. Nearly ready to make the Spaghetti dinner....


I had to scrap the idea of having floor-length white curtains in the house 😢:
There was no space next to the TV area.
The advantage: I can now add indirect light on the ceiling.. still to come.
And I hope that Ingrid will help me with assembling a real working clock on the wall (Ingrid, did you get that?? 😍).


I planned to use two black industrial lightshades above the dining table. But with this rather colorful and bold painting it looked too much. So I made a much simpler lamp.
This is the original lamp from Prandina... 

mirror inside..

It took me some time until I found a way to point the light upwards and get the reflection on the table: I used a mirror covered styrene and added a rim. .
First tried it with making a mould - but when I put the material in the oven the result made me laugh..


And: so pleased that my Provence house made it to the Frontpage of Miniaturas!
But why on earth did I give her that photo where the window hinge has become loose??? grr
