I am so happy to have this put back together
(and lit up like a Christmas tree):
Lights are in and some decorations and furniture.

I sawed off parts of this ikea bunk bed and spray painted it red.
Created a coverlet, pillow and mattress.
I am trying to make some of my decors and funiture instead of buying them.

This light is a "silk" flower branch with LED's inserted. (don't try this with normal light bulbs as it could catch on fire). The accessories and one cushion are Re-ment, plant post and bowl are garage sale purchases.
The pagoda from the local asian food market.
Self made cushions, towels and bench.
The bench is popsicle stick legs and foam core wrapped in fabric.

Bathroom light fixtures

I am very happy with how these turned out.

The beautiful pendant light was created on a lathe by my husband. I sent him a link to Shopping Sherpa's visit to Robert Boot's studio: and he got inspired.

I can't wait to finish all these lights so I can get back to playing.

Painter's Pyramids

These look like something that could be used in a modern mini house.
From the "Woodcraft" hobby store.

LED Mini Light fixtures

These hanging lights are made out of shade pulls and silver painted plastic coffee stir sticks.

Shade pulls mounted with duct tape on a silver painted bamboo skewer make an ok pole lamp.

All of the shades in my house are missing the little plastic pulls.
(They work fine without them)

This is a straw and half a ping pong ball stuck into one of those plastic goodies that they put in the middle of the pizza when they put it in a box.

New LED lights

Lights from Evan Designs.
They are a brighter LED than I used previously.
To install I have to take the house apart. I'm glad it's modular..

Trying them out in daylight.
And after dark

All the way from Australia

Thank you Norma!

I hand sewed them
but I think machine stitching would look smoother


These are my favorites.
The fabric choice seems to be very important for mini-pillows.
