1920s inspired kitchen



The 1920s inspired kitchen was the first room I completed in The Haunted Heritage. It's a large room with a dining area and vintage kitchen appliances. I tried to not add too much clutter, but just a few added accessories really make a difference. Feels like home.

Structurally, I upgraded the side window with a Houseworks working window and added a casement window above the sink. I replaced the interior kit wall, adding a working pocket door, using KathieB's tutorial as a starting point. There is a lever that operates the door from the open back so you don't have to reach inside to open the door.

The front bay window is part of the original kit, and considering the age of the kit wood I was happy with the way it turned out. One window assembly is completely glued together and the window is shut since the wood for these pieces was beyond repair. But, guess what? The other two windows actually work!!!! The second window is set partially open, and though the window slider isn't glued in place, the wood for this assembly is not in the best condition and doesn't allow for very fluid raising and lowering of the window. But, it works! The third window, however, works so well that I need a dowel to keep it propped open! How positively wonderful! It's just like a real life old house - one window is painted shut, one window sticks and one won't stay open!!! :D

I am certain I am going to say it with each room you share... so I'll just start now...... "This is my favorite room in the house" ....

LOL... it really is amazing though Brae... I feel like I could just sit right down at the table and share a cup of tea with Grandma :)
