New project? Or boredom :-)

In my last post, I talked about my search for a new project. One of the mini finds was a plastic fireplace from a broken playmobil toy house.

I decided to convert it to a "stone effect/ brick effect" fireplace for my house  :-)

After cleaning it, I primed the surface with mod podge, then I used a combination of distress ink pads and a permanent ink pad to stain it using a sponge.

Then I distressed it using my finger nails to scratch into it and voila ;-)
Hmmm...just have to find the best place for it :-) it turned out better than I expected!

Mini finds for my playroom, nursery, toy room....

I am fascinated with miniature toys especially ones that represented toys I played with or toys I currently play with :-)
If you look though my blog you'll know I love re-ment, so anything that is cute and looks realistic gets my attention.
I went in search of a new project last week, and I found the toys below,

 some are dolls house furniture in 1:16 scale and work with my Lundby stuff, 

others work as toys for my 1:6 scale dolls

Some of them had no markings, so I have no idea where they originally came from.

Some will find a new home in one of my houses :-)

Placing the shelving unit in waterside way house

My last post, was about making a shelving unit from a chocolate box.
I have placed the unit in my house, and am trying out different locations for it.
Well, considering my house is getting full of all the collects ;-)... I need to think carefully about where I place for now it's in the living area, I'll probably move it.... :-)

Chocolate box shelf

What do you do with a Ferrero rocher chocolate box when the chocolates are long gone?....
I know, you make a shelving unit for your doll house :-)
Hot glue gun
acrylic pieces
A Lot of patience and then some ... equals a new storage space ;-)
