This room was inspired by a navy blue sofa I saw in a Z Gallerie advertisement. I had to have it, so make-it-mini! So, I made this little sofa and in the process, I learned so many "what not to do's". Trial and error. I also made the chair and once again, I learned some little lessons (little, get it?). I made this bar cart last year while I was on hiatus and never got around to putting wheels on it. Just recently, I purchased a brass one to use in the future. The pattern behind the fireplace is a photo copy of a Nate Burkus tile (wrapped around foam core) that I bought at Target. The tile itself was too large to use. The rug is made from strips of trim sewn together. So, do you remember the unfinished dollhouse hutches that you could find at Michael's for a couple of bucks? There were about three different styles. Well, that's what the black cabinet is in the corner. I separated the top from the bottom. When I realized that they weren't restocking these little goodies, I bought about 10 of them from three different Michael's in the area.
This room has a collected flea market look, nothing matches, there's a lot of pattern and there are lots of global items. Sophisticated Bo ho, that's what I'm calling it.
That's it for now, I plan to start my X-mas scene now....yeah right! No really, I'm seriously thinking about it.
Blessings to everyone.... Beany
