Last night I worked a bit more on the bakery display furniture. I have to admit that my preference for style leans towards the minimalist modern. My house is all earth tones browns and pretty plain as for a layout.
This is because I :
a: cannot decorate, I don't know how
b: don't understand why you cannot have a brown floor and brown furniture and brown rugs...
c: am not very girly
I have accepted this, but having a very girly, frilly daughter makes you look up terms like shabby chic, girly glam and dazzle design.
So where does a earth tones gal like me look to inspiration after looking up wiki?
Scrapbook Paper... and I may now be addicted to it.
You can see some of the patterns I have used in the furniture here:
I love the fact that on one piece of paper you can get seven different looks, designs, pieces etc..I have used this bakery paper before when wrapping boxes for food jewelry. I figure I will cut pieces and layer it as signs and pictures/art for the wall
I also have added a few pieces of trim to the furniture and added the scrapbook paper as wallpaper backing for the display.
You can see a few cake "blanks" that have yet to be decorated.
work continues.. maybe I will go look for more paper...I can stop anytime I want..I just... don't want to..
