Slowly inspiration is coming to me, but every so slowly....... Eucalypta needed a cabinet for storage, but I couldn't make up my mind. Finally I settled for a corner cabinet. Not too big, because it's only a small cottage and big funiture doesn't look good. I didn't feel like working with wood, so I dug out some cardboard from a box under the bench and set to work. Here is the result:
I didn't really want some old looking cabinet. Eucalypta is entitled to some good stuff too, don't you think? It's amazing what you can do with card and a few embellishments. I painted it a very dark red, because I don't like too many different colours in any particular setting. I think it's more pleasing for the eye this way.
Now I need to fill this cabinet. I wish I had some glass bottles that I could fill. I'll have a good look and in the meantime will try and think of a few other things. I'll show you when I've got something to fill this and who knows, I might also get inspiration to make some more furniture.
I might as well welcome two more followers: Francesca (Chipironini) at Petitissim who makes beautiful baby dolls and Clara who doesn't seem to have a blog. Welcome to both of you and I hope you'll enjoy following my blog.
