Something new

I finally made something that isn't for the log cabin. My etsy store had been seriously ignored. :-) This started as a Michael's hutch that I took apart. I turned the base upside down, added a desktop to the new top and put the hutch back on top. The chair is a Chrysnbon Duxbury.
The book covers and folders are printables. I made the pens and pencils from colored paper clips. The laptop is made from fun foam and pictures from the internet. I made the candy, candy dish and mug of tea from polymer clay. The bulletin board is aida cloth and the thumbtacks are just dabs of paint.

I really like the black and brown finish. I wouldn't mind one of these in my real house. Too bad it isn't so easy to make one in 1:1 scale.

What a great idea. I really like this! I've got three Michael's hutches sitting here! I love the aida cloth "bulletin board." It looks a little like pegboard too.
You are so creative De!

This is great. I love that idea. I haven't realy done any bashing of these hutches yet but I intend too and I love the idea of adding the larger desk top. Thanks for sharing.
