One handed projects.

Have bot been able to use my left hand for 5 weeks now. I did manage to find some things I could do with one hand.

One of them was sort out all my boxes of small bits and pieces . I dug up some old hutches and started altering some things and then  filling new hutches with stuff I found.  I had fun with it and I like to show the results of my one handed  crafting just in case there are others who need some inspiration .

Kitchen renovation


Here is my new kitchen for the kitchen



I turned a simple kitchen into a vignette 







Before  and after 











This is what a friend brought me after a visit to a flea market. A little wooden kitchen.







I had big trouble painting  it  because the marker dots and  strips in the wood kept showing up. In the end I used spray paint.  The frame came with it and it was very uneven and no amount of sanding would help.
I covered it with  crumpled tissue paper and painted it white.




I wanted it to look like a messy kitchen where there is a lot going on.

  The oven is just a picture decoupaged on but  with the metal handle and the cloth it looks pretty good.


To get the idea of a sink I glued a small tray  filled with dirty dishes where the sink would have been.

I  had to have a broken coffee cup for that is a regular thing in my kitchen. I cut up a plastic cup and the coffee is glass paint.

Work in progress trying out different things.

Added crochet potholders and a handmade notice board and lot of stuff from my boxes of mini stuff. I also made some mini bread and veggies.
All finished  . It now resides in the kitchen.
