Decoupage Chair

Take one normal, basic type of chair and make it look different. I've seen this done beautifully in full size and thought, 'Why not give it a try?'
I printed some pretty paper I found on a website and with Mod Podge I did this!

This is the paper I used, found on The Miniverse

I shrank the design using Photoshop and printed six squares. Tearing the paper doesn't work in miniature so I cut it into lots of tiny, random shapes and used a small brush to paste them down.
I let it dry overnight then sanded very lightly and gave the whole chair a coat of Mod Podge to seal it.
I'm very happy with it.

Miniature Carrier Bags

Just for fun, I made carrier bags this week.
I have no idea where I shall keep them all but as I am finally refilling my displays after all the real life redecorations I shall find homes for a few as I have several shops.

In real life, I am a carrier bag hoarder. Maybe my little people are too.
