For my next trick...
I wanted a Moroccan-inspired sofa for the gazebo. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be something that mini furniture manufacturers are scrambling over each other to make. If I wanted one, I was going to have to make it myself.
It took a couple of weeks to put together, mainly because I had NO idea what I was doing. No idea whatsoever. It was two weeks of trial and (lots of) error, blood (I really sure be more careful with those X-Acto knives), sweat, tears and swearing. The result isn't the most professional-looking thing ever, but I'm pretty proud of it anyway. Here it is:
If you're feeling masochistic and would like to try it for yourself, here is what this thing is made of:
- 4 pre-cut basswood rectangles
- 4 pre-fab wooden turnings (for feet)
- 1 length of miniature resin molding
- brown acrylic paint
- black acrylic paint
- antiquing medium
- craft foam
- Pier 1 napkin
- burgundy and green fabric scraps
- gold fringe trim
- sewing thread
- gold thread
Next up... a Moroccan-style tray table.
