|Printable Kitchen Project
The idea for this project came from vintage Miniature Kitchen
toys, sometimes called Nuremberg
Kitchens and were available in the early 1800's and later. These drawings
are from a John Wanamaker 1905 Catalogue.
The project printed should measure about
4 1/2" x 3 1/2". Glue the room and floor to card stock or crescent
board then fold the room into three. Add the window using card for
trim. The stove can be glued to a small piece of wood or layers of mat,
then add a black top to the stove and the pipe and glue to the back wall.
The accessories can be cut out, shaped and glued to the walls. Add
furniture of your choice, a butcher block and table made of wood or card.
A cutting board and rolling pin could also hang on the walls. Then let
your miniature child play to her or his heart's content. Hope you
enjoy this project. I would like to thank my friend Shirley Rose for lending
me her brochure with turn of the century tiles and bricks.
I also used these tiles and floor for a 50's
Kitchen using styrene plastic pieces for the cupboards, I changed the
colour of the tiles in a print program and laminated the tiles. The painted
metal minis are from Anitamoriginals.

a message to Small Stuff with a wonderful description of her Nuremberg
Kitchen ( click on the link to read).
