Retro Kitchen - Quarter Inch Scale

Retro Kitchen by Cascade Miniatures

This is the overall picture of the kitchen. Excuse the fact that it is too light. But it does show the layout of the kitchen. The wallpaper border has pears in it. Plate rack is above refrigerator. I did not use the hutch kit that came with the kit. I finished it and loved it, but wanted more space in my kitchen so I left it out.

I used the plexiglass top and will save the electrical items for another project.

Here is the eating area. I have a copper tray of apples on the table. Love fruit motifs for kitchens. I did not use the wallpaper provided by the kit - I like a bit more bold paper. You can see the wide stripes on wall paper and the matching red and green rugs with pears on them.
Used a large wall picture of pears to continue the pear motif. The counter top has the coffee pot, plates, cake and fancy coffee ready for company.
This picture show a better picture of the counter top.
This was a really fun project. I rarely, if ever, complete a project in the exact manner that the provider of the kit recommends. Must be a personality disorder, but more likely, I like to make it mine. I will add other things when I get a chance to make them. Kids pictures on the fridge, a dish towel or two - perhaps hot pads. Don't know just yet.

Love the kitchen! Like you I like to make kits 'mine' by adding some individual touches. I really like the way this kitchen has so many details in it - shows just what can be done in quarter scale.
