There is something magical about miniatures. For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved little things, and my kids are no different. So they are loving this miniature library that I set up in our den bookshelves. Look for a box that fits snugly into your shelf. It could be an antique crate, a cookie tin or a shoebox. If you are worried about gluing paper to something antique, consider cutting cardboard to fit into the box and glue the wallpaper” to that and fit it in to create the papered walls.
Things you’ll need:
Miniature furniture such as a table, a fireplace and chairs
Miniature accessories such as a desk set, books, a lamp, cuckoo clock and tea things
Things to do:
1. Cut scrapbook paper to fit exactly against the back wall of your box (you could do the sides as well if it fits with your box).
2. Paint any unpainted furniture and allow it to dry.
3. Arrange your furniture and accessories in the room, be sure to add lots of small details to help make the room look lived in.
4. Fit the box in between books on your shelf.
