Kitchen finished!

I have finally finished the kitchen on my little French house. I am quite happy with the kitchen floor, especially the colour.  I had originally bought a paint colour called Spanish Tile which I thought I would like but it actually looked a lot like pasta sauce spread all over the floor.  I added some cream paint on top and it looked like pasta sauce with cheese, complete disaster. The floor is now a kind of putty greenish colour and I waxed it before and after grouting and it has a lovely sheen to it.  I added a mantle over the space reserved for a stove and the little shelves in the end cupboard plus the roof lighting and a gas meter for effect.


 The little roses on the table started as a little kit which took me HOURS to do!  Hndreds of tiny tissue paper tear drop petals to be shaped and glued one by one. No wonder it is so expensive to buy handmade dollhouse flowers.

That is all for this week, I hope to be able to show you the completed front hall next week, I am close, but am still working on the floor. I love dollhouse Sundays! but I wish there were more of them in a week.

Have a lovely week everyone!!

  1. Oh Sculptress!!! Your tile floor is PERFECT!!!! The putty color and the sheen of it are so lifelike and it appears to have mellowed over the years to what it is now. I love the rustic wood mantle over the stove, the light fixture and the addition of the gas meter which is another Great touch! The roses you've made are Lovely, and I know that you must be very pleased with the way everything looks Now, even though it took a couple of false starts to get it there.
    It is BEAUTIFUL!

  2. I love your floor, it's funny how perfection often stems from a state of panic. You really pulled it off in this room and the details such as the fuse box complete the picture. It's going to look amazing once you furnish it.
    Well done
    (I wish there were more Sunday mornings in a week too...)

  7. Hi, I think your kitchen looks amazing...the tiles are just lovely, but the little flowers took my breath away. They look so real, so the hours of labour have achieved the desired result!
    All the best

    1. Thank you so much, the instructions for the roses are in French so I had to type everything into google translate, but so worth it.
