The family living room

Here is my first attempt at a diorama LOL. It is still a work in progress and some of the things will be changed around and things will be added.  
So come on in.... Welcome to the family living room. 
Here are the twins Alex and Alyssa sitting by
the fire place in their PJ's with their dog

Darren and Cassie sitting on a lovely couch
made by Fashion Dolls at Van's doll Treasures
Thanks Vanessa for the creation of your lovely couch

Darren is holding little Darren jr.

Lil Rusty playing with his stuffed animals.
Darren's sister Damita is visiting with her daughter
Danelle. She is wearing a lovely OOAK crochet
baby outfit made by my friend Ms. Anna

The chair, end tables and coffee tables, I found at the
craft store in the wood section. They were repainted
and finished.
The cabinet in the back with the plant and magazines
is part of a Gloria furniture set repainted.

Damita has yet to be repainted and visit the
Chynadoll Salon :)

Plants were placed in a wooden cylinder that was
then painted.

Lil Danelle has been flocked (just for the heck of it lol)
and her face was repainted.

Fireplace, and Tv stand were hand painted
 along with the other
furnishings in this set (except the couch of course :)

Just chilling on the comfortable couch :)

Butterflies on the wall are wooden
shapes from the craft store which were
repainted to match the scene :)

Magazines were made by printing out photo's
then placing sheets of paper in between to form
a book. Hot glue was used to keep closed:)

  1. WOW! That's phenomenal. Seems like you've been doing dios forever. You have a knack for repainting furniture, too. Everything looks so real! I really like the golden yellow wallpaper, too. Love the kids, but you already know that. Great job!

  2. Thanks Vanessa :) I had fun putting this together and it all revolved around that lovely couch. Now my repaints have a comfy place to sit and chat and take fab photos. Your photo stories have been very inspiring to me. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Your living room is fantastic. Maybe I will try and repaint some furniture. You can give me some hints when we meet again. I need all the help I can get.

  4. Thanks Frannie, any time your ready :)

  5. I love it! For your first diorama, you did a fabulous job. It loos so comfy cozy.

    Love Lil Danelle's flocking and matching eyebrows, too!


  6. Great job! Are you sure this is your first dio? Lol! Everything looks good. I especially love your repainted furniture. The kids are all so cute!

  7. It absolutely looks real scale! Vanessa's furniture is beautiful. I can't wait until I can afford to purchase a sofa, my girls would love it (sense my men have no say so over decor, LOL)

    I've always liked that Gloria set, same reason...the TV and stereo. Your paint job is perfection! Will you be doing photo stories here and there? I can't wait to see another diorama from you, love it!!

  8. Thanks Debbie, yes lil Danelle is too cute! She is my favorite little person t the moment.

    Thanks Georgia Girl, yes it's my first dio lol. It's still a work in progress so stay tuned as things change :)

    Thanks Tracy, I too love the Gloria sets. It's so much fun to repaint all od that hot pink mess lol. As far as the photo stories, I don't have any plans as of now but who knows lol. Ask me if I would have done a diorama six weeks ago and I would have said no lol.
