Mrs. Gruyere and Vintage Tattered Style Dollhouse Furniture
Nina Hartmann's book Vintage by Nina. I wanted a miniature dollhouse chair that looked completely tattered and shabby chic just like the ones in Nina's photos. I hand dyed some cotton fabric with a brown/black watered down mix of acrylic paint in the sink. Let dry. After I put the fabric on each piece of the chair I cut little rips here and there with a sharp blade. I colored the rips and edges with a brown ink pad. Then I used the watered down brown/black to make more stains. I used spindles for the feet of the chair.
Coming up next is a pastel themed dollhouse I'm building for Jennifer. Until next time! Happy building!
