  1. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    A little window in the corner of the room to let light into what could be a dingy basement bathroom.
  2. From the album: Mini Furniture Rehabs & Builds

    I made two more of the fourth option... I think for now I'm going with this one.. that is, until I change my mind.
  3. So I need assistance picking a trim for my linen shades. Mock up below. I'm going for a rustic modern look... I like the white trim but think it might be too white for the dark metal and a bit refined for the look I want. The one on the left, I like the colour and texture but it's maybe too bulky? The third one is hemp rope and I think maybe too much contrast? Or not.. Originally I did this.. Which I like the best.. but no light shows through when you turn it on..

    One more option.JPG

    From the album: Mini Furniture Rehabs & Builds

    I need your assistance in picking a trim for my Chandelier shade upcycle. After Carrie's comment on the last pic about contrast, I thought I'd try one more option. I think we might have a winner?...

    Bead Cage Light

    From the album: Mini Furniture Rehabs & Builds

    My bead cages finally turned up from China, so I made a quick light out of one of them. I have three.. they would make good ball pendants over an island or over bedside tables.... I just punched a hole in the top for the bulb wiring added a necklace chain and done.. The cage opens so you can change the bulb.
  6. From the album: Mini Furniture Rehabs & Builds

    This is the trim detail.. Nail Art 3d rectangles and copper tape.... I like this light from this angle.
  7. From the album: Mini Furniture Rehabs & Builds

    So I'm still on a lighting kick... I bought these cheap plastic lights from China a while ago... They were boring as is, but had good lines. I tried painting them silver with metallic acrylic and a brush... NOT successful!.. So I bought some aluminium spray paint and gave them a good coat. Unfortunately the bumpyness left from the original paint job still shows on this tester lamp. The rest will only be getting spray paint for a smoother finish. I also added some copper tape and some nail art rectangles to the edges before painting, to add a bit of detail to the plain shade and make them seem a bit more chunky and industrial. I added jewelry wire to the inside of the shade to form a simple bulb cage. Sorry for the poor quality image of the makeover.. I resized this picture down quite a bit to match the size of the light in original form and it became very pixellated..

I added jewelry wire to the inside of the shade to form a simple bulb cage. I think the 2.0 version would use aluminium flat craft/jewelry wire instead of copper tape. The tape wrinkles due to the shape of the shade and it doesn't look that great in places. Also, I'd like something with a bit more depth.. It's hardly worth the effort because it's so thin it doesn't add much to the overall look. I need something slightly chunkier..

    Here is a picture of the clip on earring back light bulb holder for Miranda (SewMini).

    Modern Lamp.JPG

    From the album: Mini Furniture Rehabs & Builds

    I made this lamp today. Honestly, I'm just procrastinating about getting out the mini table saw. I have some cutting to do on the San Franciscan basement! So I just made this out of a bead I had on hand, a raised washer for the base, a jewelry pin, a clip on earring back and card. The shade is a bit large but that's to cover the flame bulb I used because it was the only one I had on hand. I need to replenish my stash of wired light bulbs. I think I may paint this yet. Probably white, like everything I do.. or maybe in a simulated wood finish because of the basket weave bead.
  11. From the album: Mini Furniture Rehabs & Builds

    A modern light fixture made with a simple ball pendant fixture I had in my stash and a wire ball from the local "Choice" store (Australian version of the dollar store, though hardly anything is a dollar. ). All painted with Rustoleum Satin Nickel spray paint
  12. From the album: Vermont Farmhouse, Jr.

    This is my favorite picture of the house so far, as it looks like it is twilight time in early spring. The tulips look so real, and the blue reflecting from Maureen's real life window looks like the ocean waves showing through her house.

    Jhumka Set 2

    From the album: Various Miniatures

    The two on the left are part of the same earring. The big one left pins into the ear, and the one dangling from the chain gets draped over the back of the ear to hang fetchingly on the neckline. This one was more pricey, but has real crystals dangling from the jhumkas. The next one has pink crystals inside the cage and pink crystals dangling from below. Will make a pretty chandelier for a ladies parlour or bedroom. The one on the right is slightly different from the jhumkas in Set 1, but it was good to stock up! Next time I go, hopefully they will have some gold ones in stock.

    Jhumka Set 1

    From the album: Various Miniatures

    Modeled by my daughter Shannon, these earrings are all quite large. The one in the middle is one and a half inches across. They are perfect round domes - so will look good from any angle. Since I am not electrifying my houses, these are perfect little chandeliers. Cost is about $12 per set for earrings = 2 jhumkas, makes 2 light fittings - good value for money!

  15. From the album: Country House - Renovated

    Ernest Hemingway or a weary traveler (or trick-or-treater) may find Grandma's dining room a welcoming place on a dark, October night. After a weekend consisting of a Halloween party, town parade, and costume contest, the family prepares to settle down for a warm and cozy evening.

    Late Night Talk

    From the album: Country House - Renovated

    Grandma and Amy are enjoying a late-night girls' talk after their party-going visitors left. Good thing their new ceiling light allows them to see in the dark. It looks like their company brought some wine for Grandma and Grandpa.
  17. For my Garfield, I don't want to electrify it but I do still want to put little lights in each room. Other than the glue option, could I use jewelry flat-pin wires? If I drilled a tiny hole in the ceiling/floor panel, then inserted the pin from the top - then bend the bottom into a little hook shape - would it be strong enough to hold a light fitting? I'm thinking that I could then do the floor covering for the upper floor and conceal the pin head. Does anyone have a better suggestion? Obviously this is an important step, especially with the bottom front corner room that will become inaccessible once the wall is up. Gosh, so many things to consider for each step of construction - I hope I'm not missing out on anything practical!
