I am in love with my latest project.
I started out with a rusty electric box thingy that I find out on a dog walk and I turned it into...
A Miniature Steampunk Laboratory
|Outside view with embossed flourishes.|
Everything is made by hand using scrap pieces of metal, jewelry findings, and other odds and ends.
Here...lemme show off some more :)
The stool is made from a bottle cap.
The rug is from an upholstery sample I cut up and edged with a zig-zag and finished with paint.
The little blue prints...squeeee!
Check out the mousey skull that I found in an owl pellet last year.
Perfect for my lab!
A steampunk invention of some sort on the desk.
And don't forget the inside door!
I had so much fun making this little laboratory.
I've had the electric box in my stash for a year now, quietly waiting for the perfect idea.
When I saw that theme for the August Challenge at Sandee & Amelie's was "In the Laboratory" I knew I had the right project for my rusty treasure.
I do love it when things work out, the glue sticks, the pieces fit, etc!
