Once-upon-a-time

Standard

there was a very dark green kitchen dresser

Yes, this is still about the bathroom

Cupboard in corner with a piece of packaging acting as glass top.
Linen box with cork top for all your bathroom needs such as a book to ruin in the bath and/or your transistor radio should you need it.

Shelf additions

While I’m here I’ll tell you about some fiddling on the shelf

and the green dresser?

Guess where the corner cupboard came from

I bought the green dresser because I liked it and it was cheap and I also believed I might be able to use the top half in the kitchen of this 1930s to late 50s house.  Actually it reminded me of the built-in cupboards you find in the kitchens of this period of house, although the  trim at bottom and top gave it the look of an earlier period.

Using the remains

Yesterday I started the rescue operation of the remaining base section, comprising one of its outer walls, part of the original back-board, a bit of theinfill art deco dolls house blog, theinfill dolls house blog, theinfill 1930s-50s Deco House, Hogepotche Hall –Hodgepodge Hall - Medieval Tudor Jacobean dolls house blog - bathroom - small cupboardbase and a wildly swinging wooden door.

It’s now masquerading as that bathroom cupboard, having had its other half built up in 3 mm cardboard along with a new top in the card and a couple of internal bracing pieces too.  Also added a new door handle more in keeping with the blocky styling of the period and painted the confection in a suitable shade of pink. It has really lumpy painting before sanding down.  Used bits of that thin acetate (the packaging you get these days that’s more plastic-feeling than cellophane) to keep door open-able while paint dries

And the top half? 

Well, my intention is to eventually move on to a fantasy/steampunk/medieval land build, once this current project has also moved on to its final stages.  I’m sure I’ll find a home for the cupboard (with drawer?) in some scientific establishment that may or may not make up part of the future fantasy fling.
