The BedroomMay 24, 2009
The last two rooms in my dolls house I've been working on are the kitchen and the bedroom. Neither of them are finished, although the be...
The silver in my bedroom was made by Jens Torp. Well, all except one of the wall sconces next to the bed, I made that one during a class by Jens two years ago.
Most of what you can see in the room was made by me, like the doors, wall panelling, floor, mirror etc. I use wood, paper, card and paint to make these.
Two years ago I got to go to the Guild School in Castine where I upholstered the chair in a Nancy Summers class. It fits the bedroom perfectly. As you can see I still need to finish the windows, put the skirting boards down and put the cornicing around the room.
An overview of the room. I made the floor from slats of old window blinds, giving them several coats of stain, paint and wax in order to achieve the right colour. The door in the back on the left gives acces to a small bathroom. The bathroom still needs some work before I'm happy with it.
I upholstered the chair to look like one I saw in a magazine article. Very rococo, so pretty as if it is wearing a little jacket. I love the shoes. I found them at the Arnhem show at a Canadian stand. The chest of drawers was a kit on which I glued a beautiful burl veneer. I want to make silver handles for it one day.
