Ivy Rose Shoebox Cottage 009

Ivy Rose Shoebox Cottage 009
The sitting room furniture is also made of foam board, covered with brown paper to start. The Victorian style chair's curve along the base was achieved by scoring the foam board all the way down to the paper backing. If you do it with a sharp X-acto knife and a little forethought, you can create all kinds of shapes. (My Earth Guardian's throne is all made in foam board. This stuff is incredibly strong.)

I used wood patterned cotton fabric for the table and exposed wood finish on the chair. The chair is padded on the top of the seat and inside the tuffed back. The fabric is upholstery fabric. I was given samples from a friend years ago. First time I've used it!

To create the incredible shine on the "wood", use multiple coats of Mod Podge gloss.
