close ups of the sunroom - Michigan Lake Cottage - Spring Fling 2012

The couch and purple chair are vintage Lundby piece I refinished, the pillows I sewed myself.  The fabric I upholstered the sofa with I picked up at the Bishop show in April, the rest are from a quilter's charm pack I got at JoAnne's.  I also picked up the modern style green chair at the Bishop was teal, and taller, but I repainted it and then shortened the base to make the seat of the 1:12 chair the same level as the 1:16 furniture.  I made the lamp from a wooden finial (though I had my husband drill the hole through it to run the wire through, because I was a big chicken)...the paper lampshade is held up by a wire harp..a big thank you to Kris at 1 inch minis for the harp tutorial.

The rug is a 1:12 afghan from otterine.  The coffee table is a piece of round glass from a small picture frame atop a rusty nut I stole out of my husband's garage.  The other two end tables and the plant stands I made from tiny turnings and scraps of wood....I don't have a good picture of those, but they're not terribly exciting.

I made the magazines on the tables, which are all local publications, in keeping with my Grand Traverse Bay theme.  The ceramic cat I got at the Bishop Show, but I don't remember where I got the yellow glass vase.

Most of the plants in the sunroom were made from kits.  The palm and snake plant are from Bonnie Lavish kits.  The Boston fern, 1/2 scale African violet, wandering jew, Christmas cactus and schefflera were made from kits by sdk miniatures.  The polymer clay cyclamen next to the lamp is from Twilla's Tiny Treasures.  I made from scratch the philodendron on the other end table, the swiss cheese plant, and the no-named plant sitting between the wandering jew and the Christmas cactus.

Gorgeous Work! Love every detail!


I love that second photo! Looks so real!

Love the kitty! I remember your buying that...I apparently picked up a grey one at some point because I ran across it in my stash this weekend. :D

All your hard work on the plants really paid off. Wonderful!


Thank you :D


The detail you put into everything is amazing!

The rug really pulls the sunroom together - such intricate work.
When do you get to hear the contest results?

That is such a nice sunroom. My husband is really wanting to add one on to our home. Any suggestions would be nice.

Great job refinishing the lundby furniture, both look fantastic. This sun room is spectacular. I love the leaves on the roof panes, and the bird feeder outside are such a great touch. Fantastic plants, really cozy room.


This is truly marvelous work. You overlooked no detail and created a beautifully customized living space. Good luck!
