Today I worked on Rosey’s room and classroom. I had a big space between the wardrobe and the table that is Rosey’s room, plus there is a weird indent to the wall in the corner as the place where the table is was originally an opening to a bed closet. So I pushed the wardrobe up to the table and that created another wall. To keep anything from falling into the indent, I took the wall down from the classroom.
There you can see the indent and the new wall. Which ends up being great, because now she has a widow!
Here is the room full on, as I see it from my bed. I can sit on the edge of my bed to play. I no longer have the lovely furniture I once had in this scale, so boxes and tins had to make-do. It took awhile for me to figure out what to use and not use, I have a lot of antiques and vintage and feel unsure about what to blend up. My sewing machine makes a nice sideboard/mantle and the box ended up making a kitchen area. I even made a small bathroom using a toilet bank (flush to drop coin) and a small doll trunk for a table, a bowl for a wash basin. I’ll put up a mirror when I find one.
Here is the kitchen area:
I have since moved the telephone, but I thought it was fun to have the tins and tea boxes out. This tea set belongs to Meredith Bear as it has bears on it. I also found a tiny antique bear book, perfect for her too.
Meredith is an adult bear, so I am sure she will take care of the tea, but I will have to make a step stool for her, she is too small to reach this counter!
But I did think the little stove would be perfect for her to heat the kettle on, but I will have to find a kettle, lol.
The classroom was a challenge as I have no bookcases anymore. I took a cardboard box and wrapped the small piece of scrapbook paper I had, it didn’t cover but the front and one side, but at least I got a surface for the books to be on until I find or make a bookcase.
I had a partial map of Scotland, so I cut that out of a brochure and taped it up. I got out the violin stand and took some of Yorik’s things, like the diploma, calendar and globe and clipboard and typewriter. I do have two computers, but I don’t know yet about going that modern.
Here I tested the sepia tint. I guess the bookcase ‘’hole’’ can be a window. I found a wooden hanger and thought it could hang there, but I may add a piece of clear plastic and make it a window. I would love to put up a chalkboard, I am sure I will find one eventually. Sigh, so many things I already had and had to give away. I had to really try hard not to get upset about it.
Lastly, I got down a box that had the bicycle in it.
Poor Rosey’s feet don’t reach the pedals, but she insists that it doesn’t matter, she wants the bicycle so much.
I am not sure the Duchess approves! lol.
