Nell Corkin, and the benches are similar to one she had us build at the Guild School. The basket of firewood and ax were both model railroad pieces. I built the table, quilt stand (under the left window), and shutters from scratch.
Light was a major consideration for this roombox. The kit comes with a beamed ceiling, which looked great but made the room very difficult to see. I considered using the ceiling, and adding lights to the fireplace and "outdoors" to brighten the room. I thought about adding the beams without the ceiling, or replacing the solid white ceiling with a piece of clear glass. In the end I decided that the beams just weren't going to work for this room box.
I also decided to set the kitchen room box in a larger case, so that I could have a view out the windows. I used a bit of vellum paper for the top of the box. The frosted finish hides the "outdoors" but lets plenty of light in.
I added lots of little details to this room. The windows have real glass, courtesy of a microscope cover slip. I even added a few painted flourishes to the red cupboard. I'm particularly pleased at how realistic the bowl of "wildflowers" look. I used floral foam for those, broken into tiny, tiny pieces. The finished arrangement is only 1/32" tall.
