Shelf In A Box

I've had this little box for some time now and finally decided to do something with it.  Its very small and no furniture would fit in it so I made a shelf display out of some scrap wood.  I made the books out of jumbo popsicle sticks.  The lamp was from my collection of game pieces (a chess piece to be specific).  It was a fun and quick little project.

A Few Mini Projects

 I haven't been crafting miniatures much lately.  But during some de-cluttering, I got in the mood.  Here are a few small projects that I've finished.

My mother found this little display box for me at a yard sale.  I cut and stained some jumbo popsicle sticks for the flooring.  A scrap of carpet material sample for the rug.  I made the fire place out of a broken trinket box and scrap wood pieces.  The rest were items I've found here and there mostly at yard sales and 2nd hand shops.

Shabby Chic Miniature Bedroom Finished!

I fixed the dangling strings after the picture was taken....
Sorry the pictures aren't the best quality.  They were taken with my phone.

I made the bed and bedding.  The box, rug, and paperdoll picture were gifts from my mother.  The lamp is made from an old chess piece and some scrapbook paper.  The trash can is a toothpick holder from the Dollar Tree.  The cat was from one of those toy machines outside the grocery store.  It was a quick but fun project.

Playing with Minis

 So I was digging around some of my craft stuff, looking for some mini ideas and came up with these.
Items include a ring box, wood block, round scrap wood piece painted black, a tiny candle holder (have a bag full of them from a thrift store) golf tees, party favor cups from the Dollar Tree and a diy Christmas ornament I got a couple years back on sale for 50 cents.

I made a side table, a butcher block, some modern chairs and a foot stool.  I plan on fixing them up with a little more detail later.  What do you think?

Old fashioned Lantern

My first attempt at making one of these.



I think it came out pretty good.  I used some beads, wire and a straw.

Shabby Chic: Newest Project



Now, my rule is not to buy anything new until I've used most of what I have first.  But....I didn't do it, my mother did.  She gave me the shelf, the little picture on the wall and the little weaved rug.  She found them during her yard sales.  The carpet is an old place mat I had. The back wall is some scrap book paper and I'm going through my furniture and accessories now to decide what all I'm going to use for this one.  I'd like it to be a shabby chic bedroom, but we'll see.

The Wizard's Liar

This one has actually been done for awhile, I'm just now posting the photos for it though.  Sorry I took so long.

 On the walls I used plaster, painted grey and used a watered down dark wood stain in all the creases and added some glitter.
 All the frames art are magazine cutouts.
 Most of the accessories are beads, marbles, game pieces and toys.

 The books on the floor are made from note paper and old leather gloves or wallets.
 The stand was made from a small candle holder and a wooden eagle I found in the sale isle at Hobby Lobby.
 The gold table was another candle holder with a wooden circle on top.  And the rug was a book mark.
