Ladies Secretary

This is the same tutorial I used for @kittykill’s tea cabinet. Miniature tea cabinet 1:12 scale Again, I tweaked it- all of the drawers open, including the tiny ones, along with the cupboard part. Learning from the first version I made, this one has brads for drawer pulls rather than beads. This also enabled me to use a magnetic closure on the cabinet door. Wish I’d thought of that for kittykill’s cabinet!

This one took quite a bit longer than the tea cabinet- those tiny little drawers inside might just be the fiddliest thing I’ve ever done! I think if I were to ever do this tutorial again, I would omit those and make another tea cabinet.

Could you scale this up a bit? I have a perfect place in my living room and this would be perfect! Maybe a bit larger, say…full size?

I love all the detail and fun accessories. And the colors are perfect.

I love this! The pattern for the back is just awesome.
I can’t believe how small it is considering those are brads!

Thanks guys! I should have put a penny in the shot for scale. :thinking:

Wow—I think it is great that you learned to tweak your awesome original to make a second one that is even more awesome…learning as we go! I love the colors and the magnetic catch is a great idea!
