My Model Room: #6 Furniture

The next part of my model room project is some more furniture; drawers, desk, shelves and wardrobe.
My furniture is grey with pink plastic beading on the edges. Who knew that those two colours would go well together.

I used cardboard packaging and other bits of card for the furniture and painted it all grey. I also cut lines into it to give the illusion of separate drawers.
For the pink beading I mixed PVA glue with pink acrylic paint because this would give the plastic look I wanted. I applied the mixture with a syringe as this gave me a very thin line...although there are some parts that are a bit messy, you can just ignore those.

For the drawer handles I mixed up some more glue and pink paint and spread it thinly on a bit of plastic. I then put pink seed beads in it and waited for it to dry. Then I cut circles out around the beads. I'm sure there's a much easier way to make the drawer handles, but this way worked for me.

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Glad to hear of so many flash back moments from the Barbie chairs. I have been over to visit (lurking) a few times and I love your model room and miniture stuff. That bunk bed is genius! Couldn't believe what you made it out of!
