Dollhouse Miniature Vintage Kitchen Scale

Hi all! This week, I attempted something new. While browsing pinterest, I found some uber cute vintage kitchen scales and I've always been crazy with anything vintage or antique, if you do not know by now. I wanted to challenge myself and I think I may be able to make it into a dollhouse miniature version.

Yesterday, I spent several hours making my first dollhouse miniature vintage kitchen scale. Most of the real ones are in a lovely shade of teal or turquoise, and it's one of my favorite colors, so why not?!


Again, it's one of those things that I'd not have been able to make several years ago, without the knowledge of using some materials. I made this using only a bit of wood, but mostly plastic and metal, which is a big step for me. I'm slowly learning to discover the beauty of using plastics in my work, but it's still a new technique.


Plastic is wonderful, but perhaps because I'm still new to it, I'll have to say that it's taking me a longer time than usual to cut and glue them together.


And yes there are some plans to make them in different colors, so please stay tuned! :)

  2. I LOVE your new/Old Kitchen Scale! I love the square-ness of it and I think that you have done a MARVELOUS job in aging it. One can "hear' the springs creak as the produce is loaded on top. Beautifully Done!!!! :D
