Shabby Chic in 1 inch scale, pt.2

I decided the best way to show off the three different aspects of the Shabby Chic setting was to do three different posts with three different sets of pictures.

This post will have pictures of the items made in the class only.

Below is an overview of the entire room. The window was not actually part of the class but is very hard to remove for the sake of a picture.

The bench was made from a kit provided by Joyce. The table was actually provided by one of the participants but the painting technique was covered in the workshop. Also I thought the flowers and bunny cookie jar would look silly on the floor in this picture.

The dress form was constructed from the torso of an "el cheapo" doll from the local dollar store, some cardstock, a piece of wallpaper, fabric, and trims. the quilted pocket of posey on the dresser is polymer clay that was stamped, baked, and painted. Joyce provided the baked clay pocket for the class. We filled them with dried flowers.

The center of the floor is supposed to look like an oilcloth had been incorporated into the flooring. I'm wishing I had either trimmed around it or simply attached on top of the carpet as opposed to cutting a hole in the carpet.

All in all it was an awesome workshop. Joyce is a wonderful instructor and a great hostess. I'm very much looking forward to the next time she hosts a project.

The next installment of Shabby Chic will show off the gifts the participants exchanged.
