Well, I cannot call it 'Kit Bashing'
What do you call it when some of your
furniture breaks? Abuse, breakage or
'bashing' furniture! It was my fault. The
bookcase was not properly stored 13
years ago when it was stowed
away in my attic. Do you see the damage
on the bookcase top? Fortunately for me
I have another one of these red-looking
bookcases. That bookcase is in good shape.
The little dresser cost only $1.00
at the dollar store. So for that price you
can afford to 'bash' it. My intentions were
to just glue the bookcase on top of the dresser.
Then attach the doors that came off of another
item. But when I got to measuring I found out that
the cabinet would be too high & would not fit into the
room. I could have kept the dresser as it was
& just cut down the bookcase but when
I looked at it. It just looked like a dresser
with a bookcase attached. So I decided that
I cannot do that. What I did was cut away
the top 2 drawers & reattach the dresser top.
After looking at it for awhile - I decided that
I didn't want the doors on it. Then I painted it
black. I liked it so well that I forgot about the
damage on the top of the bookcase. But you
know - you can't even see it so I am not going
to worry about it. However - this piece just might
get repainted purple or red! This piece is going into my
witch cottage. I have made great strides in
my dollhouse & I cant wait to show it to you!
