I love answering your questions. If you ask them in the comment section, I have no way to answer you (if you haven't heard from me, that is why). If you use the "EMAIL ME" in the left column of this page, I will be able to respond to you. You can also use it if you want to be added to my newsletter. Laura

MINIATURE FURNITURE FOR ANTIQUE SHOP - VIDEO TUTORIAL - NEW COLLAGE SHEETS

This is the second in a series of three posts focused on building an antique shop.  This second post focuses on the shop's furnishings and the decor displayed on and in the furniture.  

Making the furniture was made easier by using unfinished furniture & die-cut chipboard kits, which I used to make a bookcase, desk, sideboard, Victorian table, and more.

Each piece of furniture is loaded with all kinds of vintage bits and bobs, too many to mention.

I can't say enough about the Kraft-Tex paper.  It has more of a fabric feel (you can sew it) than paper, and it is perfect for a faux leather look.  I demonstrate additional techniques in the video to make it look even more realistic.  

One of the cutest items is the desktop bookstand pictured below which is made from a kit and has an AlphaStamps collage sheet with various decorative designs from which to choose.



Below you will find a video tutorial, information on the new collage sheets, a detailed supply list, and then a link to a master supply list of all of the products from AlphaStamps for this project.

I've also included a downloadable template and instructions to make the column I used to display the David bust.
