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.


  1. I really liked how the room looks like. ;)
    Good luck and I'll be waiting for the next post.

  2. Muebles muy bonitos, el sofá es precioso.
    Cuando esté con la decoración quedará perfecta.
    Mil besitos...Julia
