Office Lilly # 02
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.
