It's been a long time since I posted anything new. Life happens that way sometimes. I'd like to continue sharing our journey and I hope you will join me.
The master bedroom should be luxurious, comfortable, and reflect the style of the owner. I'm not sure how that fits in a dollhouse, but my sister was very clear that the furniture in this room should have a gunmetal grey color. I love strong colors and a mix of patterns, and my mother wanted "fancy" windows (truly, I think she just had these 2 - which don't match the rest of the house - on hand and wanted to use them ;)
- The headboard is trim from a dress
- The bolster is the sleeve of a shirt
- The bedspread was a bustier
- The shams were a pair of gold jeans
- The bench was covered in scraps from a quilt I'd made long ago
- The purse was made from scraps left-over from a Halloween costume
I made the vase out of a bead and some flowers. The jewelry box is a charm from a bracelet. Jewelry is an amazing source for miniatures. They are well made and the scale fits.
I shrunk an online image and mounted it to foam to make the painting. I spent a lot of time on Pinterest searching for "blue, gold, grey" images. If you haven't tried searching by color, do it!
When I was happy with the look of the fireplace, I added cabinets on both sides made with card stock and craft woods to match the dresser. I love how it turned out. It makes me excited to keep building.
