Thanks, George and Mike. Looking for good ribbon candidates gives me something to do in Hobby Lobby, Michaels, JoAnn's, etc. while Bonnie is perusing every shelf in every isle in the store.

The lean-to on the side of the structure is where Kate will have tables to feed her customers. One wall was clapboard and painted the same color as the rest of the exterior and the other walls just had a coat of grey primer. I thought it a good idea to print out some different wall ideas from the 'dollhouse wallpaper' section of the Internet. While there, I also printed out a pattern that would look okay as linoleum.



I printed the wallpaper and flooring out on 40 lb. paper.

This is the result. I will add just a few interior details to take one's eye away from those wooden braces at floor level. The only view will be thru the 3 window. Just a hint of activity going on inside.

Heck, Jerry, helping Bonnie hang blinds, curtains and drapes is where I learned all my "window treatment" skills.

The front wall is done. Now time to glue all the walls together.

Bruce, your Kate's kitchen is coming along really well!
This use of ribbon for curtains is a great idea!
I guess you could say, it's curtains for you now.
