A couple posts ago, I mentioned how I was going to re-make my first apartment in miniature for the Undersized Urbanite dollhouse contest. The contest closes tonight, and it’s as finished as it’s going to get.
I couldn’t leave out my sweet Border Collie that lived there with me.
I shared before a couple of the only photos I have of the cute little loft, and they were taken while my parents were preparing a house-warming party for me. One was of mom in the kitchen.
Had to have the coffee cups hanging from the upper cabinet. (Obviously, some things aren’t finished yet, like the windows and cabinets, and I forgot to paint the walls yellow before I assembled it 🙁 .)
It was really fun making minis of objects that are special to me, and several we still have, like the chest used as a coffee table. That was the hope chest my grandparents gave me as a teen. The table in the kitchen was from my grandmother too. Dad and I re-finished it before I moved in to the loft, and it’s still in our kitchen today.
The real apartment had a door on the hallway, but I didn’t want it here. There was a good-sized closet in there, but it didn’t have a door on it, so I hung a blue bed sheet on a tension rod to hide my mess.
Dishes in the sink, as there usually were.
I have no pictures of the actual loft part of the apartment, but this is all there was to it.
It was so much fun remembering and re-creating the details.
BUT…most importantly here, since the contest is now finished (or will be at 8 pm), that means it’s time to go vote for your favorites! There will be prizes awarded to the four miniature makers with the most votes. Hop over to the Undersized Urbanite website, check out the amazing entries, and pick your favorites.
