Suitcase Room




My favorite types of room boxes to do are the ones in unusual containers. My mom gave me this furniture set and I refinished it but I had no place to put it. I went looking around the house and spotted this make up case in my closet. I hadn't used it in years but it looked to be just the right size to hold the furniture. The only thing I'm not happy with is the amount of light but I have a solution for that. I just used an Aura-lite in my husband's radio room and it works wonderfully. I want to get one for this room, too. It's easy to install and provides just the right amount of light. I want to look at the hardware store this time because they are sold as under cabinet lights. I may be able to find it for less money there than through the miniature shop.

I redecorated in here last night. I like the new background and being able to have full pictures top and bottom.

I hope to get started on a new project soon. My son wants a cantina for his Star Wars figures. I've got to think some more about that one before I start.

I love the suitcase room, Deana. I've never seen this one! This comment thing is giving me a hard time. It doesn't appear to be working. Hopefully you won't get this three times!

I like your blog's new look. Beautiful background color.

That is so neat to put a room in a make-up box. Well done.
