In this photo, what I made was the chairs, lamp and wall shelf. The chairs are vienna sausage cans that are stuffed with cotton balls and a sock. The chair back is a piece of cardboard covered with black tape and scrapbook paper. The wall shelf is a piece of folded copy paper with black tape for accent with magnets holding it up. The lamp is a thread spool on top of a straw that is wrapped with copy paper. If you bought the mini cooper, there were little black things underneath the wheels. The black bottom of the lamp is one of those pieces.
Here I made the cushions and the exterior unit of the bed/sofa. The drawers are extras from the book case and can be removed. The bed is fully constructed so it doesn't need the drawers to remain upright.
All the wood is from Michael's including the little stacked side tables. Each one was 9 cents. That's not a typo so I don't know if they were marked wrong or what. The cushion is a brown piece of vinyl turned inside out and sewn around a piece of foam.
This is Tasha hanging out in the living room. She's a music major in college. The violin is something her dad wants her to be serious about but she's a rocker chick at heart. However, since her dad pays for her college and apartment, she makes sure she practices.
Behind the Scenes
I think this is going to be my dio setup from now on. I've tried different stands to use as walls, but this large piece of packaging cardboard works easiest. I only ever have 2 walls. If I had three then I would have to bust out extra lighting and I hate that. My desk lamp and the chandelier above me cast sufficient light. I was using magnets to hold up the wall paper, but now I'll just use the Dollar Tree lamps as clamps. That way, they are useful even when they burn out. Everything is sitting on top of an old swivel TV stand that is 19x20 inches. This gives me way more space than what I had before and it's portable. Also, since it swivels 360 degrees, I don't have to move around to photograph stuff anymore.
