I always enjoy looking at my miniatures:-) and I'm always on the look out for great display options for my minis. So having stuff I've made hidden in boxes isn't something I'm fond of :-)
A couple of weeks ago I took one look at my crafting area and all the stored minis, and decided I needed to display all the miniature craft items I'd made, especially replicas of my favourite paper packs, cardstock, stamps, stencils, pens, markers, colouring media etc; at least somewhere I could enjoy looking at them.
(I had even made rolls of double sided tape ;-))
So I decided to make a craft room scene that would sit on a corner of my desk. I wanted to duplicate my work area but that got a bit hard trying to replicate my storage units, so I decided to make Ikea inspired shelving that looked similar instead but still retaining the crafty atmosphere :-) of my space.
Almost everything has been handmade by me :-)

My local craft store had unfinished wooden bead craft organizers, so I bought a couple and painted them to use as shelves.

About 5 weeks ago I saw a picture on Flickr of the new dolls house furniture by Ikea! it was a promotional picture.
I was pretty excited, although there was no information about its scale or size, I figured it might be a similar size to the furniture they have had in the past, or maybe even suitable for 1:12 scale!
Then I came across a very informative post by The Shopping Sherpa and I was crushed that it was in an odd scale, about 1:8 scale, but then again it might work with re-ment?!
The set was due to be released in august here in the UK, so I had to wait. I kept going back to the website for information and finally I couldn't take it anymore I had to have it or at least some information on when it would be available, so I contacted Ikea on the 1st of august, and was told it was in store at my "not-so-local" Ikea,....grrr... with the promise of a family lunch at Ikea I dragged my family off to Ikea this morning and tada! I am now the excited owner of 2 sets of the Huset series :-) and as you do, I immediately tried out a scene with it ....
It comes as shown above in a white cardboard box and plastic covering...
I used one set to make the scene below :-)
