The Garden Room
This room was inspired by the plastic plant square that I picked up at the dollar store during Easter. I thought it would make a great plant wall, but this isn't the room I envisioned, so I will make another attempt at a later date, (TRANSLATION: you'll be seeing this plastic plant square again). I finally got around to making my first sofa and attempted to follow the tutorial by Pepper of MitchyMooMiniatures, but I detoured (almost immediately) from the tutorial because I suck at following directions, but it was a great guide. I used foam core and wood, and the wood was pre-cut, so it actually turned out to be a love seat. I need WAY more practice and I think I'll really try to stick to the tutorial next time (I'm sure it'll save a lot of time)! The credenza is a pimped out iPhone box. The coffee table is a bracelet topped with a mirror. The wall mirror is a painted purse handle. The chairs are CB2 painted chrome. The purple table is a hair product top. The assorted flower vases are pen parts. The white hanging pendant is made from paper. The rug is a napkin. I replaced the back of the Lekman box with a wine rack. My favorite thing of all are the colorful wine bottles that I ordered from an eBay seller in China and couldn't wait to get. Paper and accessories are from Michael's and HBS Miniatures. Well, I think that covers it.
Welcome to a few new followers! It's always exciting when someone joins in! I can never believe that someone actually interested in seeing what I'm doing.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Beany
