Miniature Bar

I put together a little bar recently.  I left some from the kitchen scene to create it.

I used the new table for the scene.

I used the cabinet from the kichen scene. 

miniature beers

I made some mini beers using some coca cola minis I had.  I painted them and cut small advertisements out of the local paper and glued them on.  My husband thought that was great and took some pictures of his own to send his friends.

The brick wall gets a new make over soon, so be on the lookout for that.  See you then.

Miniature Kitchen Table

Remember a while back when I made a living room scene but I wasn't happy with it because I felt the couch was too big?  Well, I took that couch apart and made this instead.  The legs are more of the Dollar Tree version of Jenga blocks.  I love it!

I plan on getting more of the little chairs from the Dollar Tree and painting them all white for a farm house type decor.  I wish I had this table in full size.

Kitchen Is Finished

It's still not what I had planned in my mind but I'm over it.  Too many frustrations.

I forgot to mention some things in the previous post about this project's progress.  The flooring for example is contact paper from the Dollar Tree.

The "corrugated metal" was some packing material my husband gave me that I painted and the sink's counter top is sandpaper.  The sink was a jelly container and the faucet was from a broken barbie toy.

I am going to keep the "brick" for a little longer because I have a bar in mind that I would like to make and I think the brick will suit the scene well.

Miniature Kitchen Progress

in progress

So I am not a fan of the brick.  I am too impatient of a crafter to take the time to do it properly and yeah, it came out pretty bad.  But I am going to use it anyway for this project because I did put a lot of work into it.  We'll look into doing something different later.

diy miniature cabinets

I used foam board and scrap wood to make my cabinets.  The handles are beads I picked up at the Dollar Tree. 

miniature wall murals

I'm thinking of using another calendar page for a wall mural.  You will probably be seeing a few of these "wall murals" just because I'm on a kick.  There is a long way to go, but this is what I have so far.

Funky Miniature Bench

I wanted to make a bench.  I started with some more pick up sticks and a jenga block.  I also started with some scrap grey felt.

But I didn't like the result with the grey felt so I covered it with some fun material I picked up at the Dollar Tree some time ago.

I prefer the furry purple.  Now I have ideas for a funky bedroom.

Kitchen Prep

diy miniature kitchen accessories 

diy miniature rolling pin and cutting board

I am wanting to create a kitchen scene soon.  I have very little for a kitchen so I will probably be making the majority of it.  I started this week with a couple of the accessories.  A rolling pin and a cutting board.  I made the rolling pin out of a dowel, from the Dollar Tree, and some pick up sticks I've had forever.  I made the cutting board out of a large popsicle stick.  I plan on staining the cutting board.  And I had left the glue gun plugged in and the glue "burned" so  now it has that brown.  I'm hoping to be able to cut away most of the visible glue on the rolling pin.

As for the temporary room box, I haven't gotten very far with it because life in general gets in the way.  It has been a slow couple of weeks, hopefully things will pick up for me soon.  Keep your fingers crossed.

DIY Miniature Brick

I am working on changing my temporary room box again.  This time I want brick, white brick to be exact.  I've had this pack of sand paper in my stash for some time.  I am painting them white and then cutting them into small "bricks".  The progress has been very slow.  Mainly because other stuff keeps coming up and this project gets pushed to the side.  But I will show you the finished results as soon as it is finished.

However, my question for all of you, should I leave the back grey to resemble grey grout?  Or should I make it all white?
