Night Necessities

I meant to get these finished sooner, but studying for tests has higher priority.  And if you’re wondering, I got 91% on it. :)
photos 730I made the night stand in a similar manner to the dresser, cardboard pieces glued together then painted and sealed, etc.  Again the drawer is fake, it is extremely difficult to make a working drawer that small.  The lamp is something I am quite proud of.  The base is made from a piece of cardboard and three different beads glued together.  I mixed some blue and brown paint for the color and painted and sealed it before gluing on the shade.  The shade is made from a piece of recycled paper from a note pad I won in a drawing at the library.  The paper was just the right color and weight for this purpose.  Just think, with these the bedroom is more than halfway finished.  Can’t wait to see it finally all done.
Here’s the updated list:
  • hangers
  • bed
  • mirror
  • dresser
  • skirt
  • pocket
  • lamp
  • night stand
  • wardrobe
  • rug
  • framed art
  • curtains
Eight down, four to go.  I’ll have the next up tomorrow, although I do have another test tomorrow as well.
