Sneaky Peak.

Its been a while since my previous post but things have been moving along quite nicely.Now that i have finished work for the Christmas holidays i will be able to get a little more time in on this project and hopefully share a few more photographs and talk in detail about the items which are going to grace this room.

 
The first thing you will most likely notice is there are no windows or fireplace this was intentional from the offset as wall space will become a premium for displaying tiny and unique treasures two of which are already mounted into the walls, these i will tell you about in future posts. The ceiling also still has to be constructed and installed properly. I was a little concerned at first about the size of the room once it has all the items in place but usually these wunderkammer or so called treasure rooms were often rammed to the ceiling with objects in some cases items were often hung from the ceiling to, but i look forward to watching the items appear and changing them around to get the best effects.This is also the first project i have built with electrics once turned on  the two wall lights not only transform the room but also the items in it, again i will get some more photos taken over the next few days to share on here.
Have a great weekend everyone.  Tony.

  1. My God, that is amazing! Once you are finished with it, the little room itself should go into a 'Wunderkammer'. I can't wait to see what happens next.

  2. It's looking great Tony! I like the soft green you have used on the walls. Are the two wooden panels Chinese carvings? It is difficult to see, but they remind me of a carved card case I have hung on the wall of my dolls house library.

    1. Hi Josje, i experimented with three different colours and the combination you see i liked best, as for the two carvings well your correct in one way, one of them is a small japanese wood carving that i was going to use in a previous project, the other is a little different though and has a rather more interesting story behind it, im going to see if i can get some close up photos of these for another post.

  11. I like the idea of a non-traditional roombox without a fireplace and windows a lot. It allows to display more tiny minis! Looks very interesting! Merry Christmas! Mini hugs, Natalia
