Finished the Chair and Ottoman

I finished the chair and ottoman, now I have a set that is homemade.  I really liked making the furniture, even though it was a bit time consuming.  Every time I finish a piece I think ....I should have done this or that...., hopefully I'll remember what I wanted to change the next time I do a piece. 
Sorry the picture is a little blurry.

New Couch and New Look at My Fairytale Cottage

I changed my layout on blog and I made a new couch for my cottage.  I will be making a chair and ottoman to go along with the couch.  I'm not sure if I will keep it for this cottage or for another.  I think I like the white couch for this cottage, but I also like the style and color of this couch.  What do you think?  I know I still need work on my couches, but I'm getting a little better.

Pearl Necklace

I made these two pearl necklaces, I think they turned out pretty good.  They are very tiny, since I usually make real life jewelry, but they were fun to make.

Perfume Bottles

My version of perfume bottles...I did not know that the glue I used for gluing the beads together would also stick to my fingers...that is what I get for never reading directions before I jump in.

Oh well, maybe one day I will read the directions....

Oh well, maybe one day I will read the directions....or use tweezers!!

Kithen Table and Chairs/Mini Halloween Cards

I got the chairs from Hobby Lobby and I made the table.  I used wood glue and hot glue..I'm really wanting to learn how to use real tools to make furniture.  I definitely need some lessons first. I even have a dremmel  tool and do not know how to use it. Oh well, maybe in the future.

I also made some Halloween Cards and Envelopes.
 The pictures are blurry, I couldn't get a descent one, but you guys get the idea...I think they turned out Okay for my first try at mini cards and envelopes..they are just simple cards, maybe next time I make them fancier.

Painted Bedroom Furniture

I tried painting the furniture white and didn't like it, now I've painted the furniture apple green with white accents.

I'm not sure if I like the furniture, it's too big for the cottage.  I will keep it until I get more furniture, and it was fun making these, maybe I'll do a room box and use this furniture in it.

Everyone have a great week end!! - Kim :)

Cardboard Furniture

I thought since I haven't any bedroom furniture I would make some, until I decide on the furniture that I want.  Until then I've created a bed and a dresser out of cardboard....of course I will be sprucing these up a a bit.
  I made this out of match boxes and cardboard and match sticks to cover up the ends.
I made this out of an upside down large match box, small dowels for the post and cardboard cut outs for the head and foot boards.
Here is a picture of them both.  The lighting is better in this picture.  Well, wish me luck in trying to make these two pieces look presentable.
