A New 1/144th Scale Project


I haven't posted any new projects in a while, because I've been working on a special little project.This roombox started out as a piece of bespaq furniture. I made the wallpaper pattern out of a few clip art designs, which I shrank and repeated. I built two quick little console tables out of little brackets for either side of the fireplace. As it turned out, the one on the right can barely be seen.  I took the crooked andirons out and fixed them right after taking this photo.
 
See? No more crooked andirons! I mostly furnished the box with resin pieces from Nell Corkin. The fireplace,sofa, wing chair, and dresser were all from Nell. 
I added a plastic model railroad cake and teacup to the table.
The flowers in the blue pot were a last minute addition. I used a vintage seed bead, which is closer to the blue of the furniture in real life. I still need to finish up a few little details. I'm debating whether I should add a pair of candles/ginger jars to the mantel, or just leave it plain. I also need to line the drawer below the room with some pretty paper, but other than that, this project is done!

  2. It is lovely, Eliza, I can't imagine working that small, think I will stick to 1/12 scale, except, I do want a dollhouse for my dollhouse ;-), so I guess one day I will have to venture into 1/144.
