Fixed My Mini Couch

diy miniature couch and chair

Remember the mini couch I made but wasn't happy with?  The one from this post?  Well I finally got around to doing something about it.  I took everyone's advice and made the back higher.  I also added some back cushions and I painted it all white instead of leaving it brown.  I am very happy with it now.

I also eyed this little wooden girl that I got second hand and that has been sitting on my shelf all this time and saw her in a new light.  She fits the new furniture pretty well I think.

Miniature Marvel

Miniature Marvel bedroom

Do you remember this post and the boat cover material samples I got.  I used this one as a headboard for this scene.  The wall mural is from a calendar.

The bedding is some felt and an eye glass cleaning cloth.  The rug was from my sample stash.

I stole the backpack from my daughter's barbie stuff.  And the trash can was the lid from some hairspray.

miniature diy lamp

The little Avengers picture was from the back of the same calendar. The lamp was a chess piece with a lid on it.  (I save all my lids.)

miniature side table

I know that the figurine is actually an X-men and not an Avenger, but he's what I had available and it's all Marvel.  Also, the side table is the center pizza thing with a wooden disk on top painted black.

I'm super happy with how this scene came out and if I ever get around to making some new roomboxes, I will make this a permanent setting.

Short and Sweet: Black and White Scene

black and white miniature scene

I haven't had a lot of time for my mini making lately.  However, I do have plans for some permanent set projects rather than my usual temporary scenes.  Hopefully those will happen soon, but for now I leave you with this little black and white scene I put together a while back.

Trash to Treasure: New DIY Mini Couch

I had some old jenga blocks and decided to make a couch to match my new chair.

I'm not happy with it, so any advice one of you might have for improving it would be graciously accepted.

A little New Mini and Scene Creation

I didn't get very far in my mini making this last week.  But I did take this old game piece and paint it silver with some old nail polish.  I meant to showcase it in the scene presented below but the scene took on a life of it's own and it became less about the little house.

I've got a lot of other stuff to catch up on so the next few posts will probably be short and sweet but I will keep them coming.

Boho Inspired

I made a new boho themed scene.  This time, however, I had some inspiration...

room inspiration

From this life sized scene I found on pinterest.  I didn't replicate it exactly but did copy some of it's elements.

I had fun with it and plan on finding some more life sized inspiration for some more mini scenes in the near future.

New Prints and Lamp

miniature prints

I do not have a working printer currently so I had to wait until I could get to my in-laws to print these off.  I got most of them from ads for real life sized prints.

I also made a larger black lamp to match it's smaller counter part.

miniature dresser

Finally I created this little scene with my favorite "wallpaper".

Where do you find your mini prints?
