Home Decorating

November 7, 2008 at 9:55 am 2 comments

Well I have been super busy this morning! I have made a quilt cover for the double bed, two single bed covers for the bunks, 3 pillows, 3 cushions, recovered the lounge, new bath matt, table runner, strand of bunting, painted a canvas and made a shaggy fur rug for the lounge. Phew. I am exhausted.

Here are some pics:




I got this lovely Plan Toys dollhouse for Sabre second hand and gave it to her for her birthday. There is quite a bit of damage to some of the furniture but with a bit of dowl and plugs here and there I can probably fix most of it. It was also in need of an updated decorators look. I used fabrics from the lovely Moda Blossom Range. The table runner didn’t quite work out…I cut up an old straw place mat but of course it all comes apart  once the binding is cut so I tried to sew over it but it was very messy. Might try to redo this later, or give them a lovely fabric one. The shaggy floor rug in the lounge is minky.

I am on the hunt for some new kitchen furniture to do the ground floor but for now I hope the lovely little family is happy with their home makeover.
