MY "THERAPY" CHRISTMAS ROOM BOX
Having become a bit overwhelmed by Life, the Universe, and Everything,
I am under a doctor's orders to spend time doing things just for myself for a change.
This is my first "just for me" project, and it was inspired by
"Mixed Media Dollhouses" by Tally Oliveau and Julie Melina
This room box was made almost entirely with materials I had on hand. The only items I purchased for it were an old home decorating book, the back cover of which became the walls, and the glass to cover the front opening. Everything else--from the craft lights to the miniature fabrics--were items that I had previously collected for never-completed projects, scrounged from trash piles, made as experiments, or had kept just because they might be useful some day!
This image shows the room box with the front open.
Views of the full finished project with the front closed are shown below.
I have a miniature fabric collection that is available through the printing company:
Jane Walker Miniature Print Fabrics
I designed the entire room around the pattern on the back cover of an old home decorating book.
Below is the complete room box. It is intended to be displayed mounted on a wall,
which is where it was for the holidays!
It looked great on the wall, but the lighting was not good for taking photos
that would show both the inside and outside clearly.
