I really have not ever made my own dollhouse furniture. I have made the occasional accessorises- little plants, some things for my kitchen, bathroom do-dads- but furniture intimidates me. I want to learn so I am going to attempt to build as much as I can for the tea shop. I am not even sure of what layout I should do since usually I would decide on some furniture I wanted from a shop and make little paper layouts from the measurements to see if everything would fit before purchase. I decided to do this same idea for my furniture, so last night I started building a cardboard layout in the tea room. I know some of the skilled artists I follow might find this silly, but I truly don't know what I am doing and I would hate to waste a bunch of wood. Cardboard is much cheaper :) I have not progressed very far, but it is making it easier to decide what to do. I am a very visual person and numbers tend to confuse me, so seeing it is much better to me than reading a bunch of measurements on a paper. I welcome any "building" tips anyone wants to give me because I am truly winging it--is this a stupid way to start at it- am I just wasting my time?
