Once the Heavenly Hair window was finished I thought it could use an extension. So looking through my crafting stack I found some narrow pieces of wood, some plaster and some nicely turned wooden pegs from an old corner shelf. Unexpectedly while grocery shopping I came by an old mirror ( from a beauty chest maybe??) that was calling my name on a recycle bin.
I painted the wooden pegs and the top of the Heavenly hair box in white acrylic paint.
I framed the top of the box with remnants of wood.
The walls of the balcony are 72 cm length (the 3 walls together ) X 12 cm high
The pegs were a bit too wide for the thickness of the wood walls. I added a little narrow wooden rail on the wall edge. I evenly spaced, glued the pegs on top of it and covered them with a piece of molding to create the handrail
I covered the wall facade in plaster, then I painted everything white.
The old mirror was screwed directly to the wall.
The door ( virtual access to the stairs) is made of fiberboard, painted white.
I have used pieces of an old lamp and a tiny wood stick painted brass for the door handle.
The door window is made of a carton frame over a piece of aluminum.
At the inside base of the balcony I glued a false ceramics paper from a model construction magazine. the reflection in the mirror gives the impression of depth.

Later on I added some planters.
