My plan for this project was to create a room inspired by one of my favorite wee chairs in my collection. “The Music Room” chair is from the Willit’s Take-a-Seat collection by Raine.
The Room Box
I started with a basic nook box that I found on sale. I built the box, and measured some pieces of fabric and paper to fit. Looking back, I definitely would have done the walls and floors before putting the room box together. I got ahead of myself and excited to build.
The Piano and the Curtain
The piano is actually a 3D puzzle music box I put together a few months back. To make the piano top, I took a picture of the chair miniature, and printed it out. I traced around the shape of the piano and decoupaged the print on top. I did the same with the piano bench. The curtain is an upholstery fabric sample that I cut with pinking shears, and used a toothpick and eye screws for the hanging rod.
I made the overhead light from an LED party bulb. The bulb is super bright, so I painted over with yellow and green to dim the glow. Then, I cut and folded a lampshade from the same material from the same print I put on the piano.
The Final Details
The final touches are the sheet music, a candle, and a mirror in miniature. These were a few vintage pieces I found when I picked up Plumbrook Cottage for the first time.
I enjoyed making this box, and I learned a lot during the process. I’ve already got quite the list of ideas for more rooms, and I am excited to see what new lessons come with each.
Thank you for being here.
