A Laboratory for my rusty treasure.

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
inside view
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!

I'm linking this project to:

Sorry about the word verification--my blog was hijacked not too long ago, so now I have to take robo-cautions.
