busy busy me….

I have been on a roller coaster of adventures. Were do I begin, as a gift my boyfriend surprised me with extra money, I was told not to spend it on nothing but items for my dollhouse. So I went to the fabric and craft store and went bonkers.  I have this problem, I really want to buy stuff for my dollhouse, but making it is so much fun. So I decided to make a couch, chair, pillows, and curtains for my living room. Here is a picture of the couch. I made it a while back but it needed to be finished and pillows added.

The couch design was inspired from a photo that I seen in the PotteryBarn magazine. This is what I tried to achieve, but my design went another direction.  

The first red flag should have been when I tried to re-design a chair. Instead of going with the traditional square design I wanted to make the top portion round.

Have I mentioned that I have never taken the adventure to reupholster anything before the miniature world. It is a challenge to upholstery mini items.

I tried my best, I just need to add some trim to the top to hide my flaws.The bamboo trim was added to match the couch and to add a lil coastal feeling to the room. I have the feet all stained and ready to be placed on the chair. Now I just need the time to begin the task.

Every time I work on this room the design keeps changing. My real house is defined as electric, a lot of warm colors. This dollhouse is streaming to me to not go that direction as far as warm colors.  I mentioned before that I was beating up a china cabinet and turning it into an entertainment center. Well, here is the finished product!

I'm gonna put a flat screen T.V., in the middle. I still need to find carpet, and make curtains until the next adventure take care.

What do you think?

I have been busy over the past few days. Preparing for finals got me buggin. To de-stress, I sneak off to my garage to have some mini time. I did finished the couch. I just need to add some feet to the bottom. I went to Michael's today and found what I was imagining would look great as the modern feet.  I was gonna just let this be my example couch, because it's the first one I ever made. But I feel it came out pretty good, so its a keeper. Just don't turn it around, experience will show, lol.

After this adventure I decided to jump up stairs( I said jump because my house don't have stairs), lol. To continue work in the master bedroom. But after being stomped on what color to paint the room, I jumped back down stairs. Another adventure for another day.
So I decided to paint the living room all white. I have crown molding that goes in this room. I don't think Im gonna paint it white, maybe a cream color. Unsure.
So this is the almost finished room. I found this wrapping paper and it spoke to me. So I decided to use it as wallpaper. I'm so loving this room! I think having only wallpapering this wall makes the room look so classic & sexy. 
See that silver top in the corner of the room. I think I'm gonna make a coffee table out of it. It is a top from a candle from Bath & Body Works

The next step is to add carpet and finish the room. What color carpet should I use to go in this room? The next adventure will  be stripping a china cabinet and making it into a entertainment center. Until then happy adventures!
