American primitive Christmas 1

Hello dear readers, I have already started a new project, this time a Christmas room in American primetive / old style. I wanted to make this for a long time, I think it is such a beautiful warm style with lots of warm colors, so I search everywhere on the internet for ideas.
I hope I can copy that style a bit and then I make it back in a crate, the beginning is there.

The old barn schop 3

Hello dear followers, first of all thanks for all the ideas, and indeed with a counter it is nicer. So the beautiful table now works as a counter, I put it with the drawers to the front I think it looks better and under the window I have made a windowsill  and put all the stuff there.

And yes I have a modern cash register made of wood, made black, print on it and varnished and sheets of wrapping paper.  I don't know if you have seen it, but I also made paper bags at the vegetable cupboard.

And thanks to Jodi for all tips and ideas and inspiration; https://my-miniaturemadness.blogspot.com/

The old barn schop 2

Hello dear readers, well I did a great job working on the store. Made many prints and made smaller in wordpad program so that everything fits nicely on the bottles and jars. I also made my own prints for the cookies and potato bags.
I searched for blank labels on the internet, then I put the words in with a photo program and make it smaller.
And yet it seems that something is missing ... but what?


I have made bottles with fruit juice, bought the jam jars and vegetables, the apples, oranges made with fimo.
 The opening in the crate on the left ... I made it a little larger for a window and closed the opening on the right.

The old barn shop 1

Dear readers, I started a new project in 1:12.
I found my inspiration in the beautiful shop of Jodi Hippler,  https://my-miniaturemadness.blogspot.com/      especially the large store cupboard.
Here in Holland we have also many farm shops, so inspiration enough.
                       

      So first how to start, I found 2 beautiful wooden crates in a reasonably cheap store and  in the right size, I sawed these through so that you no longer see the seam and then glued the 2 halves together, I painted them first with Gesso but later I found Chalk paint, much better.
               I still had a few nice cupboards and I painted them too.

I call it "The old barn shop" because the crate looks like an old barn,
I also want to make a front with a window and door in it.

So ..... the 1:24 house still has to wait.

Kitchen unit

Hello dear readers, I have finally finished my kitchen unit,  because it is made of cardboard it was quite difficult but it looks nice, I am happy with it.



And I covered the roof with wooden roof tiles and paint it.


And I found a plastic gas stove, but it's yellow, I hope I can paint it.
Tips are welcome.
