Japanese Restaurant (work in progress)

I received a large box of Japanese food and with that I decided to create a Japanese Restaurant. 
I purchased a room box and within a month or so I was wallpapering, creating lighting, putting up a wall and decorating. This was my first attempt at electrifying and I found it to be quite easy. I was was nervous going into it
 because I thought it was going to be harder than what it really
There are a few things that I know "not to do" in my next attempt at running
 electricity. Besides electricity there were a lot of firsts for me: I created all the furniture, made all the lights (except the one in
 the kitchen), made curtains and linens and put bricks on the outside of building. There are a few things that I need to finish and they would be to make a fish tank, build a sushi bar, hang pictures on the walls, figure out what to on the bares walls in the kitchen, make a sink and frig, and attempt to finish the outside which I am still unsure on what I want to do. I will post more pictures as I find the time to finish it up. It has been so much fun building this restaurant and I hope you enjoy the pictures and story about this room box as much as I enjoyed making it! 


  1. This is lovely. I would think that in the kitchen you might have stainless steel shelf unit along the bare wall next to the door to the restaurant. On it would be spare woks, bags or bins of rice, a bunch of bowls, plates and tea utensils etc. Chop sticks in a container ready to go out to the tables.

  2. Thanks! That's a good idea. I hope it fits though because next to the door is where the frig is going to be. Thought I needed one of those. There is room on the other wall though. Thanks for your comment!

  3. What a nice idea!

    I'll visit your restaurant when I'm in the mood for sushi ;-)
