Neal and Sarah's Kitchen

Neal and Sarah are the dolls that started it all for me in the writing of The Priors. Both are OOAK (Neal is by Veronica Hage and Sarah came from the wonderful Dawn One Sixth Sense) and were purchased just before I needed to save up for a house move. My dad said I could never stop buying but I did! I called it Dolly Cold Turkey and this none buying made me look at my collection in another way, I started to play with my dolls.... build them homes and write about them. I also posted EVERY SINGLE DAY on Doll Divas Doll Board. Now you want to know how long? Honest answer I can't remember!But it was a VERY long time I think about six months? Now anyone who knows me knows six DAYS is hard for me. My reward apart from the money to move was Giselle Diefendorf Costume Drama. But my unexpected reward was my love of writing, story telling and the making of dioramas. 
When I moved I had no place for my dolls so had to get a room/garage built... (more money and saving required) Check out the beginning of my diorama blog for more on that. 


After some years I have STILL to get back to my story but soon I hope?


Back to Neal and Sarah's new kitchen.
 This was kitchen one back in 2011
Kitchen two still in 2011
Kitchen three still in 2011



After that I was busy with other rooms, this is from 2013.
 ............................
And now...
 From this
 to this
 Worktop added. The sink and cooker top come away pretty easy. I also covered a couple of strips of foam core to make shelves.

I also upgraded the flooring as I feel this works better.


 I covered some board to make shelves
 I still need to add the door and coving
 Plus, the fridge freezer. I'm not sure whether to leave it white or spray it chrome? I did think about covering it in chrome sticky back plastic but the handles are not easy to remove? I will give it some more thought... maybe leave it white for now?
 Neal and Sarah have two young children so they have two high chairs.
 The table and chairs are from Amber in Mn Bashette' http://www.bashetteironworks.com/
And this is their housekeeper Faiza.
