Progress on the Modern/Industrial

I made a couch and chair from scrap wood and material.  And I made a coffee table from scrap wood and a pizza center thing...whatever you call them...




I did a stained popsicle floor, which I think came out perfectly.



Then I put it all together with a scrap piece of blue velvet.  (I got a stack of sample materials at a thrift shop for 50 cents.)


All that is left for the living room is art and accessories.

Miniature Fan

Working on the industrial modern dollhouse, attempting to hand make as much of it as possible.  Here's the fan I made for the upstairs bedroom.

 I took an old light fixture piece from our junk drawer, some popsicles sticks, a button and a broken earring.
I'm liking it.  Btw, the back wall is scrapbook paper, flooring coming soon.

Mountain Man Made me a Dollhouse!

 So my husband took an old shelf, added a room, back and bottom.  I've already started working on it. I'm thinking industrial modern. So excited!

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.
