The interior is plastered and painted. All the decorative accents like the roses you see here are from Artistic Supplies.
I finished the chandelier with clear and teal Swarovski crystals.
The aged mirror was pretty hard to do. The first 4 mirrors had a red painted back. I was able to strip the paint off of those easily. But I wanted one big piece of glass. So I went to Lowe's and bought some mirror tiles. They have a gray backing. I had to apply the paint stripping 3 times to get it off. This mirror in the above picture has some striped marks. I like them for this space, but they are not the traditional old mirror aging.
I actually thought it was wong until I went to a shabby chic store and saw a table with that same look. So I'm using it. The spots are made by leaving Clorox drops on the exposed silver back for about 5 minutes. You can then paint the back of the mirror with a black and silver mix.
For the ballet bar I used 3 picture hangers and 2 bamboo strips I got from an old placemat. I had used the placemats as matchstick blinds in the 1920s dollhouse.
Pretty convincing right?
The mirror will get a framing next.
I'm also working on another little project.
This is a tiny little workshop. You know the kind we all dream of having. Just a weeny place where you can create at your hearts content.
My inspiration was one piece of furniture I picked up at Hobby Lobby.
It started it's life all brown. I stripped the paint off since I had the stuff out! And painted it blue outside, cream inside. I'm going to fill it with crafting stuff.
See this place is tiny. I'm going to squeeze in some sort of table/desk and shelves. This place will be all filled up when I'm done with it. The last time I did that was for the Artist's Cottage.
