New Project

While deciding what to do with the French House, I thought that I would try my hand at making something a little smaller. I wanted to create something along the lines of Mercedes little Shabby House on her blog

The design is loosely based on the cutest little studio created by Sandy Foster - she turned a little Catskills hunting lodge into a shabby studio. When I first discovered Sandy's blog, I was more interested in creating a copy of her shelving unit and book case, which is fabulous - I was wondering if there was a way to incorporate it into my French House.......

Anyway, below are a few "work in prgress" photo's of the basic structure - mdf carcass, with some scrap balsa wood for the siding - I've kept everything a bit wonky deliberately, as I want the wee house to look as if it has been put together using what was available.

Right side of the house.

This is the back of the house, the windows are made from layers of 1mm card, and I used old CD covers for the glass.

    You have been so busy. I absolutely love everything you have made. You are so talented - I certainly couldn't build from scratch like you do. There is no way I would guess any of it is cardboard - beautiful! The sofa, the cupboard the coffee table in fact all of it. Also this new project is going to be gorgeous - I just love shabby chic. I cannot wait to see where it goes from here.
