Just thought I'd share a couple of little rooms I finished up yesterday. I love the challenge of redoing an old plastic piece of furniture. I took the banquet and refurbished it. I should have taken a before photo. This was formerly a plastic love seat with arms. I removed the arms which proved to be difficult because apparently someone superglued them on at some point. This was an item I found on EBay.
Anyway, arms were removed and the connectors were removed with pliers. Batting and fabric were applied. I added a bottom to increase the height and added a backer board to allow for a more life like upholstery of the back. This took about an hour. Since I love Anthropologie, although I wish their prices were a quite a bit lower, I applied a fabric that reminded me of some of their home goods. I think it is a nice vintage look.
Some of the other pieces in the room are made of recycled home items which have been paired with wooden objects. That is all I am going to say about that. I'll let you imagine what they are.
The second little room is a cottage bath, again made of refurbished plastic pieces. I have had the sink for several months. It has been sitting in the laundry room with a primer coat just begging to be completed. It originally had an attached mirror. I played with it for a while but ultimately chose to remove it.
Hope you like the items. I couldn't resist throwing in a shot with the poodle!
With Christmas coming up, I decided to list these on EBay. Check them out. You can search them under OOAK Barbie furniture. I am ODesign on EBay.
