I love these little wine bottles, I didnt make them but I plan to make ones like these. I bought them from vendor the other month at a miniature show. She made them from Christmas Tree Light Bulbs. I thinks they are the coolest thing made from ordinary house hold items. I have already printed up mini labels to make my own wine bottles, but I just need to go through my Christmas decorations and steal a strand of lights. The lady only cut off the two wires on the bottom of each bulb, so they are still round on the bottom. I have them held in place with Museum Wax. I plan to grind down the bottom of each of mine to make them flat. Ill work on them later thought.

I used a acrylic paint bottle which i cut the top off and turned it over and painted it white, added some legs and some metal looking piping and some drains made with tin pans.
The little furnace I created out of a tin pan.
I tried to go 70s retro with spray painting the appliances a 70s Green color.
I have a lot of fun making the wood paneling walls, which all I do is use a pen and draw a deep line in the wood and then watered down light brown paint, then a spray gloss over the top.
This trailer reminds me of my first little trailer house I rented when I first graduated and moved away from home. I hardly had any furniture but I was very proud of my first home. I never thought I would own a large home like I do now. I remember when I worked in Nevada as a Miner that there was no housing available and you would wait for Trailer Houses that came available to rent, and that a lot of them were horrible and unlivable and you would keep moving from one trailer to another to get a better home. In a 7 year period I had moved into over 20 different trailers and finding one closer to work which was over an hour away from work in the middle of now where of Eureka Nevada.
I made the trailer so it has all sides and the back side comes off for access inside the trailer.
Yes the bedroom does not have a bed. I have ran out of furniture for my homes and need to save and buy more furniture.
I even made a little closet in the bedroom. My goal is to make some sliding closet doors, but I will wait.
This picture of the bedroom reminds me alot of a bedroom in a trailer house I once rented.
My little retro bathroom which I used the standard kit bathroom, then cut the toilet tank in half to make it look like a real toilet and the claw foot tub I used the legs from it on the hot water heater and surrounded it with wood for the trailer house look.
My first attempt to make a shower curtain. I just painted my back living room in my home and i used some plastic from one of the drop cloths and a hanger for the rod.
This is a picture of me just finishing the wood paneling and gluing them onto the sides. The light in the front is now located in the hot water heater area.
I decided to make some mini Playgirls to sell at this years mini convention.
My little mass production of mini Playgirl magazines.
I also started to make my own packages to package the minis I make to sell at this years convention.
My mini Doritos.
Me trying to mass produce my chip bags to sell at convention.
My mini Ouija Board Game. I though there are a lot of people out there that might want to add something like this to their houses and you cant find them to buy them. Ex specially since I see alot of people doing miniatures of spooky houses which they might want for their home.
I had to share the pictures of the new color I painted the back living room. This is the room I create all my houses and sit on the floor or on the couch when building the houses. I wanted it bright and cheerful. Since I build the new fire place surround around the plain gas fireplace and there was a lot of white, I thought a nice bright color would look good. I like it but my honey think it looks like a Popsicle. If i remember the paint color is called Citra by Behhr Paints.
The boxes in the wall have been white for over 10 years since the house was built. I love the green I painted just on the back part of the box. It really looks great I think with the lights.
There is my coffee table were I build all my houses and minis.
