a little update

Today was a beautiful sunny day and I had some time to do something. I made some shelves and drawers in my closed, a tedious job, but it must fit.

The entire cabinet is made of cardboard, only on the front I used some thin wooden strips. In the corners are mirrors, I want to set a small mannequin in there, on both sides.

I made a start with the front of the store, but it did not turned out the way I want, so I have to think about that.

Does somebody know why you can not click on my picture?



  1. Card board?? it is so good ! well done Marlies.

  2. The room is amazing Marlies! Great work.

    About the photos, I find that when I put them in the center, rather to the left or right, for some reason they won't work with the click. I don't know if that is true for everyone, but that seems to be what stops mine from enlargement.

  3. Beautifully made! I can't believe you used cardboard! It's gorgeous!!!

    I clicked on your photo and it enlarged just fine. :D

  4. Thank you for the complements girls! ;D

    It worked, Casey, thank you again!
    On such a little picture you can't see anything!

  5. WOW, this is fabulous!!! Love it!

    I can click on the picture and it comes up larger :)

  6. Es precioso, a mi me encanta trabajar en carton. Tiene una vista preciosa ese conjunto.

    Cuando se mueven las fotos al escribir el post, no se pueden ampliar, aunque la suya si me ha dejado.

    Es importante posicionar la foto en el lugar que se quiere, porque si se desplaza, pierde sus propiedades. Si hay que moverla, lo mejor es eliminar y volver a ponerla. Espero que le sirva de ayuda.

    Un abrazo, Carmen

  7. So so beautiful!! Lovely peaceful colors. :)

  8. Unbelievable what one can do with cardboard. Your work is great.

  9. Heel mooi geworden, Marlies!
    En je kleinzoon is werkelijk een schatje, leuk weer dat kleine spul he?
