Arts & Crafts Roombox


Things are moving forward with
my Arts & Crafts Movement Roombox.
Lets take a peek, but first notice the "Flappy Duck" by the door.
 from Jane Harrop's online class.
It Works too!

Looking down through the skylight of the roombox.
The box will be decorated for the Christmas Season when finished.

A peek in through the front widow lets us see how cozy the room will be.
The fireplace I made from Jane Harrop's instructions
in her book, " Edwardian Era Miniatures in 1:12 Scale".
I changed out the tiles with copper embossing,
used a metal brad as decor, and Island Lava as coal.
   The hatstand is a kit ordered from Jane Harrop.
Victorian cakestand is a kit from
 McQueenie Miniatures.

 A view with the front taken off the Roombox.
Kits by Jane Harrop are as follow......
Swinging bookstand
Edwardian armchair
Library stairs
Nonworking Floorlight
The fireplace and mirror made from instructions in  .....
Jane Harrop's "Edwardian Era" book.
As you can see Kits from JH are my favourite kits.
Woodbox I made from my love for copperworking.
Bookshelves were boughten.
My Pride... the ship "Mary Rose" model is from my
trip to Miniseum, Denmark this Spring.

Distressing the outer walls and pavement are  next on the "To Finish List".
More to come after I finish this projekt,.
