    A New Store Counter and a Miniature Bakery!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Guest Designers, Miniatures

    Wow! There’s a new Shop Counter and Black Wire Baker’s Rack today and look what a yummy bakery scene Guest Designer Connie Littell made!

    I’ve been wanting to make a miniature bakery ever since visiting some fabulous ones on our travels. A Stackable Room Box French Quarter is the perfect piece to set a sweet scene in. Once I worked out the floorplan I got to work on the display cases that would fill the space.

    I started with a Store Cabinet Base (top right corner in the photo above, and in a close-up below with glass bottles on top) to hold the shop’s pies and tarts. I painted the edges in an off white acrylic paint to start.

    The shelves are simply glass microscope slides held in place with dollhouse bricks. The slides fit perfectly in this piece.

    Aside: the cabinet to the right of the new wire rack (see the left side of the close-up photo below) is a Chipboard Secretary without the doors — clever!

    A few final additions include some vintage bakery images framed on the right hand wall as well as a few accolades hanging on the left wall. I gave myself a 5 star Yelp review, a Trip Advisor certificate of excellence and figured while I was at it added in a James Beard award. Go big or go home!

    Great job, Connie!! Note: you can see more projects Connie made: Alice Teapot Tea Party, European Alley Book Nook and Miniature Halloween Market Stand.

    More photos from Connie’s bakery are in this blog post. And here’s her supply list (lots of cakes & goodies, too)!
