Starting the Princesses' Room Interior - FTMM Tower

Hello Everyone,

How are you? Hope you are all well. Well I have been quite busy like usual with my everyday life, dolls houses and now with my Etsy mini shop. I have added some polymer clay miniatures and hopefully will be adding some more by this weekend.

I also wanted to welcome two new followers of my blog; Victoria Stitch and Wyrna Christensen. WELCOME!

Today I wanted to share with you some more of my progress on the Fairy Tale Magical Mystery Tower. Believe me folks this project is not easy. I just realized that the smaller the project is the more difficult it gets. The rooms being so tiny, you can't add the miniatures or furniture that you would love to add. I have so much to add to it that it is definitely an impossible mission.

The Princesses' Room
Anyway I have started working on the Top floor of the tower which is the Princesses' room. I have wall papered it and made the flooring. I have added a single ceiling light fit for a princess.

Wall Papering the walls and floors. & Lighting. 
As the room is in a hexagon shape and it is very small I had to do some of the furniture myself to fit in what I wanted. I have made a small fire surround made out of balsa wood and polymer clay. I have hand painted it and added a small wood stove to it. 

Fire Surround 
After finishing the fire surround I started working on the Princesses' bed. This had to go a little smaller than the normal 1:12 scale bed. I had to make is slightly shorter and narrower. Like the fire surround I have made it out of balsa wood and polymer clay. Then I dressed it up with appropriate fabric. I have used a pale pink and a nice rich blue for it. Then I decided to do a canopy for the bed. I have used the same material used for the bed. At first I have chosen a pink fabric but it looked completely lost with the wall paper so I changed it to the blue fabric which looks definitely better in my opinion.

The matching canopy

Both the bed and the fire surround where hand painted by me. So far this is how it looks. I have started working on some miniatures that I would like to add to it. I hope you all like it.

Keep tuned as next time I will be sharing with you some miniatures that will be used in this project. 

Wishing you all a happy weekend.

Take Care and see you soon.

  5. I would be interested in some of the stoneware items because I need it for a project and can't find them any where (the DHE ones I was going to get are discontinued now...) I have spent a bit too much recently, though so I'll have to wait.
