Last week I invited my friend Carrie for dinner. She not only came, but came bearing a gift- a plastic bin full of assorted dollhouse pieces and furniture. I couldn’t construct a whole dollhouse from them but that didn’t matter. I decided it would be more fun and challenging to create a series of vignettes using simple boxes from the Container Store.
#1. Shoe Box Kitchen (15″ x 7″)
The only complete set of furniture was this vintage kitchen c. 1930’s. Instead of repainting the pieces, I kept them the original yellow color. I worked with a depression era backdrop and bought papers that have an old look to them- a small print for the walls along with pages simulating linoleum for the floor and textured silver to act as sheet metal for behind the stove.

The accessories- wall phone, skillet, coke bottles, rolling pin, towel holder, hanging pendant and cup all came from Carrie’s box. The rest- 1932 calendar, towel and tray (under the frig) are mine.
