Mini Room book nook

I made this for @marionberries in the Mini room swap. It is a book nook that features a living room and a craft room. I made all of the furniture and accessories, and also added fairy lights. I knew that the top floor was going to be a little on the heavy side, so I came up with the idea of putting crown molding on the bottom floor ceiling, to help hold the top floor up. It makes me very happy that it worked out!

I am sure that you can tell by now, that I am quite pleased with the way this came out. I learned some new things, and had to think outside the box quite a bit in order to make everything in the scale it needed to be.

Thanks for looking!

I live this little house and it’s tucked in to my craft room bookshelf. I hadn’t noticed the crown molding. I keep seeing new little bits as I gaze into this mini world. The craft room has all I need to keep busy and the big screen TV with remote is there for relaxation.

How cute!! I love the idea of having something like this tucked amongst the books! And what a great idea to use the crown molding as both a decorative and functional element!

You used a giant penny, didn’t you? :wink: HOW do you people make these teeny tiny things?! It’s so much fun to look at. I’m particularly fond of the tiny sewing machine.

Tiny goodness! I love how you use coins to show the scale, but I am amazed that you can make anything that tiny…I just spotted the tiny scissors…oh dear…too cute!

I love this piece. I think it would be a thing of wonder placed between books on a shelf. I love the differences of the 1st and 2nd floors too. The 1st level is nice and tidy and in a cool tone, while the top floor is where the action happens and is more jumbled and warm. Kind of like peoples homes in reality. LOL!

Thank you @gozer! The difference in tone never struck me before, at least not that way. But I’m delighted by your assessment! :heart:

Here it is lit and in my bookshelf. It is really sweet. A craft room inside a craft room. Now who can make a little room to go on the little shelf so we can go even deeper?

I love the sewing machine, the bolts of cloth, the beads and paint, and the crafty books/patterns. There is even glue and tiny scissors! Wow.
