Bags and Boxes....
I had to build a box to go inside the bag, decorate, cut the bag and then finish the interior.
And make the wicker furniture....and the rug.
Next time, I am going for this option if I need something small. It was the simplest half inch display I have ever done.
I just sat up these two different rooms to see what they would look like.
First, one with the cast metal furniture from the 80s and some figures from..."Annie". That tells you, right there, how old they are. Hey! They were at Pic'n'Save in the early 80s and perfect 1/2" scale. I bought a few...OK, more than a few. With a little repainting, they work. Even the dog.
The fireplace in the back came in a bag of thrift shop stuff, also from the 80s. I put a metal piece across the front and repainted the whole thing at the time. It needs some touch ups, but still looks pretty good.
I am leaning towards this one, but I will have to finish the overstuffed furniture if I do.
I also need to put a varnish coat or two on the cube itself. Then it will be finished.
Then I can change it out on a whim. Instant half inch display.
Gotta go reupholster now.
See you tomorrow.
