One of the creative geniuses I look up to in the miniature dollhouse world is Kris of 1 Inch Minis. Go ahead, take a look at her blog. I will wait.
Ridiculously talented, right? And oh, what an inspiration when it comes to miniature mat board dollhouse furniture and accessories.
I have been following her blog for a long time but it wasn’t until last month that I was able to buy mat board in my city. This wasn’t for lack of effort, I tell you. I asked several framing stores if they can sell me mat board but was always shooed out with pity. A couple of weeks ago, though, in one of our random trips to National Bookstore, I found myself at the arts & crafts section. I bent to look at some paintbrushes and right beside them were pre-packed mat boards.
The heavens opened and angels started singing.
Naturally, I got several packs. Came home and attempted to make miniature dollhouse furniture.
This is a simple coffee table. I’m not as patient as Kris so I pretty much just winged the process. This was my first attempt and I figured I’d just see how it goes.
