My wall update has been on the back-burner for some time. Not because I couldn’t get the walls [it’s your basic foam core], quite the contrary I had them, but I couldn’t find the craft paper [or rather] background that I wanted to use. My last wall set up was a faux living wall that I painted with chalkboard paint and added rocks and foliage. This … Continue reading Updated Walls
Hello and Happy Holidays. Its been a while since I’ve posted on this blog, but I do have some mini-projects coming. Since it’s the holiday … my BJD condo needed a tree. I will admit that the original tree I got for my dolls got lifted to use for my everyday decor, so I used a bottle-brush tree for this project instead.
Since tree cuffs are trending I thought I would make one for my BJD diorama, but finding the cuff proved to be a challenge.
[Supplies] 1 Bottle Brush Tree + Rope or Twine + Small ceramic dish + Fiber Fill + Scissors + glue gun [not pictured] + fabric [this same fabric was used to make their curtains]
So after completing a rough version of my chair I didn’t much like it because it does resemble a box. + Then I went back and really thought what type of look I wanted for my dolly condo and that chair just wasn’t doing it, so back to the basics. I really thought about what would be easy to make on my own and sturdy … Continue reading Project #10: The Chair Saga…Continues…
Yes my chair is coming along, but it does resemble a box. + I didn’t realize how difficult this would be until I started cutting the pieces. + So last week I cut all of my pieces, but when I wanted to put them together it still wasn’t right, so I went back and recut more pieces. + Even what I measured, and measured again … Continue reading Project #10 (Continued) “It’s a Box…Uh it’s a Chair”
I’m finally starting on my first bit of furniture, and I know this is going to be a a task. + I want my furniture to be made of wood, even though I plan on adding fabric to upholster them. The hard part is making the prototype from foam core. + The first thing I did was measure my doll so I could accurately measure … Continue reading Project #10: Beginning the Prototype
As fate would have it there just wasn’t time to get to my shelving, as you know #reallife comes a knocking, and I couldn’t get to where I needed to get my supplies. + So I searched around my place to see what had on hand. I wanted to attach some hooks to one of the walls…yes to hang things but basically they would be purely … Continue reading Side Project: A Little Extra
As promised I knew that I would continue this project off-line with better materials. I purchased some small wood pieces (about 2.5″ by 3.5″) from Micheal’s. I had just about given up when I found these in the wood ornaments section. They were .29 cents each and they only had 25 so I purchased the whole little bin. + Because the pieces are thin I knew … Continue reading Project #9: Coffee Table Book *Update*
