For the mini room swap I created this little French-inspired mini garden room. Lots of plants, and steaming coffee make a wonderful start to the morning.
The semi-spiral staircase was a challenge. I wanted it to look old and custom to the setting. Whew, after several trial runs I finally got what I wanted and then had to figure out how to support the silly thing. Do not look behind the curtain.
The plants were fun. Finding various beads, raiding my scanty stash of floral bits, a bit of paint, tissue paper flowers for the tree, and we have our potted garden. Remember to water!
Scrapbook papers, egg carton flagstones, toothpicks, and odd wood bits did the rest. The coffee cups are pony beads filled with clay and additional beads for handles. Layers of paint, lots and lots of glue were required.
