Office Lilly # 02

After being tired of her first office, Lilly asked Kiah (and me) to transform it. She received as a gift a nice piece of toile de Jouy, and she adored it instantly.

Indeed Kiah helped me a lot.

I glued the toile & plain dark red (burgundy) fabric on cardboard to give this striped effect.

I finished the top/bottom with white fabric trim.

I left the floor covered in black self adhesive paper.

I made two sewing machines (trying) to match mines, with air dry clay. The result is not as good as I would like, and I will try again.

For the machines desk, the top and side are made with wood remnants, and I used match boxes for the drawers.

I finished the edge with fabric trim and painted all in white acrylic.

I made a thread holder of wood and two (false) sockets with air dry clay, to plug the machines.

The door is made of fiberboard and covered with toile. I framed it with the same fabric trim painted in white acrylic. The lever handle is made with a metallic self adhesive hook (turned on the side) and glued on the fabric.

Hubby offered me  a little mannequin (jewelry holder) that found it's place right away.

The clock is a simple cardboard cut form, covered with toile and I glued on a clock face from a magazine. the chandelier is a Christmas tree ornament

The seats are made with old mirror lamp shades found on a bin, that were covered with toile and bows.

The left pic shows  a close-up view of  Lilly 's collection of miniature sewing machines gathered throughout the years. 

To make the shelf, I used recycled broken nick-nacks shelf found near a bin outside our house

On the  right pic you can see Lilly seated at her sewing table. she seems satisfied by her new sewing room.
