I re-upholstered and painted this sofa...a lot of tea-staining later and I think I'm happy with the result, though still not sure about the gold. I think it probably needs to be seen in the finished room. It's for the morning room in Manderley. I'm not exactly sticking to the novel (I'd need a huge mansion for that), but I am using some of the descriptions of the rooms to influence the decorations and contents. The morning room should be filled with rhododendrons and will take it's colour mainly from them. I made a few from tissue paper and punched leaves, but there will be many more to make. The sofa fabric is a hydrangea print - I used the reverse to give it a more faded feel (the front side is a very vibrant pink).
Hello and welcome! I am a married mum with a little boy born in 2009 and little girl born in 2011, and am usually busy with full-time mummy duties. Any spare time available I try to spend on my other passion, working on 1:12 scale dolls house miniatures (with a few 1:16 here and there). I have been interested in miniatures all my life but only over the past few years have returned to this hobby, now working on six dolls houses plus a shop and gypsy caravan....absolutely no room for any more (unless of course my children want one of their own, I'm sure we could squeeze it in somewhere!).
