An Undersized Urbanite Update: Finished Rooms!

Well, minus the crown molding, because, that shiz is scaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrryyyy....I need to study up on it a bit more before I start hacking sticks apart.  ;)

The tween room is finished!  I will be adding molding before the deadline... and if I finish the punch needle rug by then (HA!) then I will add that, too.  It's busy and loud and fun and I love it.  :)
Ta- DAAAAAAA!

Had to inquire with some real tween girls about what posters to get.

Some little things that I had on hand and perfume bottles.  That little paper crane is from dalesq.  Soooo little!

Plant I got in the mini section at Michaels.  Whale is from Blondie.  Books I made.  Starfish from dalesq.  And that tiny little snow globe that actually "snows?"  From my dear friend, April.  That little mini is the COOLEST thing I have ever seen.

Butterflies are everywhere!  The light was from Brae.  

I got this desk ages ago, from Cyd at minimodpod, and I am so glad for it to have a home, finally!  Note the bean bag next to it!

A basket of teen girl magazines-Seventeen, Teen Allure, Cosmogirl and Tiger Beat.  hehehe

Also started adding details to the Man Cave, and I am loving how it is turning out.  LOVE!!!!  Need to run it by my actual man though and see if it is missing details.  Right off the bat, I think it needs a pipe.
 And he will probably say that the computer desk needs stuff and a better screen on the computer.

Man cave got a lot of goodies, and still more to come!


I knew, when I had the idea for this room, that it needed a globe or a giant map.  Giant map for the win!

I made all the books and the maps are printies.  Ship is from a spare Monopoly.  Flashlight from Brae.  And Robot from Dalesq. 

More books!!  Owl ends are from Jane at minifanaticus.  Binoculars and duck decoy are from Dalesq.  Platypus is from Blondie

Pillows on chair are from Brae.  Love the Man Rules poster.  The washed out poster to the left is a copy of an airplane schematic sketch.

Computer desk is Manor Minis, purchased via ebay.  I painted everything to look more realistic.  Still need to paint the body of the desk though... and fill in grooves.


I started adding things into the master bedroom, too.  And all rooms got the window trim installed.

I want this to be my room.  I love the subtle color and how sophisticated it looks. 

The dresser is doubling as a vanity.

Oh.  Beautiful.  ♥

I also finished the hallway entry.  Big love for this tiny space.  And a high five to the spring collection at Michaels, which is where I picked up that super fun laser cut wooden chandelier!  It completes the space exactly how I want it.
oops!  still needs a door handle!!

Fantastic!  

I love the design of this added hallway.  So glad I smushed it in here!

The kitchen has been slightly terrifying... I've only managed to put in a shelf and hang fun charms that I found that make great kitchen art.  Oh, and I made some small art to go in there, too.
I love the pass through, here!


As terrifying as it is to start the kitchen... I really canNOT wait until it is done and physically there.  I want it to look as great in reality as it does in my head.  :)

So what do we think?  Can I pull it off in time??!!

The porch posts are a long and tedious task, but I am already very happy with how they are turning out.  No pictures of those until I am done!

Still a lot to do, so better get back to it!

  2. Looking good! Looking good! I really like the pass through. You left one word off...realistic! The man cave is a little too neat to me. Maybe an article of clothing? The hall is great. I love the articles on the wall!
    Keep going you are on a creative roll!

    1. That's how I feel about it, but I don't want to get cocky and have it rushed or unfinished... not that a mini build is ever truly "finished"

    1. I got on a roll! Changing where I work has been a HUGE help. Plus, I have a tiny old dinosaur TV in there now, so I work during the shows that I would usually just be stuffing my face.... :)

  7. I love it so far! I don't know what it is about that hallway, but it looks super realistic to me.

    I've barely started my entry, and even Christina commented that I could probably get the whole thing finished in time, so I have no doubts your house will be finished (and even more stunning than it is now) by May. :)

    1. Ha! A lot of those suggestions came from various men in my life and others were pulled from online. The butterfly light was given to me by Brae, too.
