I've been working on the kitchen in my Rich tudor house. (By the way, I just saw this same house sell on Ebay for over $500! Wow!).
Anyway, I purchased this kitchen set (not the table and chairs, but everything else) on Ebay. There were photos of it, but it was hard to tell how poor the condition was until I got it in person.
It's the same set that's in my 1906 house, and I love it in there, which is why I wanted another.
Plus, this set came with additional cabinets and a broom closet. But yikes! As you can see, it has really been through the ringer- I'm not sure what happened to it over the years, but virtually all the paint was gone, in addition to several drawers. It was pretty sad.
So I finally decided to put in some time and refurbish it! I scraped as much of the old stuff off as possible, and matched the paint color to my other set. I cut balsa wood to fashion new drawers, and added knobs out of nailheads. I have to say that it came out pretty well! Much better than I had expected!
Only now, with all that off-white in there, it's looking a little blah. I think I need some more color in there-maybe a new table or a tablecloth. We'll see. I'm almost done decorating this house, so it will probably be the next dollhouse tour I'll do!
Hope you're all having a nice start to Spring. My kids are home for Spring Break right now, so hopefully it will be a fun week for us!
