1 inch minis, Kitchen Room Box

This is my kitchen room box. Before making this box I did a little research by buying a few old "Better Homes and Gardens" from a flea market, circa 1940. Let's take a tour. I made the box with a false back to allow for a window scene and pantry. The floor is painted to look like linoleum, the cabinet doors and drawers do not work, there's a teapot, round tin, toaster, a canner with jars of beans inside, a percolator, flyswatter, calendar, wall shelf, stove, canister set, sink, cookie jar, lots of stuff in the pantry, refrigerator, radio, table and chairs, cutting board and knife and the basket of tomatoes and beans.
I plan to share with you how I made most of the minis in the scene on this blog. If you have any questions about the "how to's" please contact me at my e-mail address.
I plan on expanding and selling KITS in the future, flowers, upholstered furniture and whatever else I think that you would like. Keep me informed, I'll do my best. Kris


  1. This is fantastic! Looks like the real thing in so many ways!

  2. Hi, your work is very inspiring. I would like to thank you, you have helped me with the few projects a have done so far. I'm a bit confused by your description of how you reduce the fabric by printer for you sofa etc. Does that mean it is not cloth, but is actually paper? Thank you

  3. Wow! Good morning! I am so late getting to the table. I am totally in awe of this kitchen and plan to make the items for my Doll House.
    However, I am so very lost with the floor instructions.
    How can you help?
