About Me

I've been into dollhouse miniatures since the early 1990's now and when I realized how much I've learned during that time, I thought I'd make a blog to share my knowledge with others. I'm mostly auto-deduct, but always found help on the Internet and in specific books. The mini-world starts and ends with your own imagination, so let there be no limit. And never say : I CAN'T .... because you can, you just need to try and have the necessary know-how. And that's the main reason why I started this blog, because I wanna share what I know with newbies in the miniature world or anybody else who might be interested in sharing what I've learned so far. So, hopefully, I'll be able to provide some useful hints, tips and tricks for those of you out there just starting with this wonderful hobby

MUSIC ROOM : Makeover

Hi there

Today I thought I might share a few pictures of the music room I made for my husband. 
In fact I made this room many years ago, when I was still sort of a beginner to the miniature world.
Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of the older version, so I can only who you the remake (it's been a few years again that I did the makeover, but still, it's kinda fun to share

Once I had remover the old wallpaper and flooring, I starting by repainting the interior and adding a wooden floor. For the ceiling and the top of both side walls, I used glossy photo paper. It was a risk, I know, but I like that glossy look on my walls. On the lower part of the side walls, I added self adhesive paper that looks like marble. And then I simply painted some wood moldings red, just like the cornice and the back wall and the first step was done

Adding a few details (you can buy these architectural details, made of plaster, in almost every dollhouse store online)

Did the same on the opposite wall of course

Starting to put in the furniture : the 2 armchairs are not DIY items, I purchases those, but the table and the shelf are my own creations, as well as the pictures on the wall

I added a camera and an old grammophone as well as a few old disks to play on it
If he doesn't feel like making music, he can always read a magazine, play some chess with one of his buddies or simply enjoy a drink

There everything my musician needs : guitars, a piano, even a saxophone (seen on the chair on the previous picture)

A little room for books and a few bottles were a must :)

Almost done ..... 

Yep, here it is, with a nice glass front to avoid getting it too dusty

Hope you liked this little tour of one of my older projects

See ya
