Babushka Table

Whew, I finished the side table.



I was going to leave the legs unpainted, but they looked a little too pale for the aesthetic of the store, so I stained them with brown paint.



It just fits underneath the seat of the chair, with a little space to spare. (Which reminds me of a babushka doll, but made of furniture.) (I don’t know how you’d put something inside the side table. You’d probably have to defy the laws of physics.)



Now Flourish & Blotts visitors don’t have to worry about spilling their drinks, they can concentrate on far more important things, like their books or their pets.

Anyways, see ya!



The Reading Chair

I’ve decided to make a reading nook for Flourish & Blotts, and I just recently finished making an armchair for it.


I wanted the chair to look like it belonged in the Gryffindor common room, and this fabric was the best fabric I had for the job.


The seat of the chair is removable, so things can be stored in it.


The arms are squishy, as they’re bolster cushions glued onto the sides with fabric wrapped over them.


As a result, they’re wide enough for an elbow, or a hot drink if you’re careful.



I’m quite happy with it; I really like the storage under the seat, though I’d change the fabric if I could. Probably to some deep red checks or paisleys or something. Or even just to plain dark red, that’d look good.

Okay, I think I need a side table, because that mug will fall off at some point, I’m sure of it.

Anyways, see ya!


Am I at Hogwarts?

I wish. I found this store near me that has a section completely decked out in Hogwarts decor, so naturally, Sarah and I went with a camera.


Most of the decor tended towards Gryffindor, though there was a small Slytherin room that was full of Slytherin merch and Death Eater masks. The chairs in the Gryffindor common room were so comfy, and you really felt immersed in Hogwarts when you were sitting in one.


We found Hedwig!


And Fluffy, though Sarah was a little less willing to get this photo. 😀


There was also a very convenient phone box outside, for easy Ministry access.


As it was a store, I did take the opportunity to get myself some merch, so I got a Slytherin infinity scarf and a snitch keychain. The scarf is lovely and soft, and the keychain currently sits on my Harry Potter shelves. I must find somewhere for it, hmm….

Anyways, see ya!


Another Badge

One reason I love these little badges is they’re such quick makes, as I can usually whip one up in a day.


This one’s inspired by Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor, particularly Alex Fierro, who’s a particularly quirky character and wears a lot of pink and green.


The rune is dagaz, which represents new beginnings and transformations, and also ties into Alex’s character as she can shapeshift.



I’m loving the small handful of these I’m building up!


In the above picture, the look I was going for was that the three books underneath or closest to the badge have the colour scheme of the badge. Princess Academy is a darker pink because it’s the closest shade I could get, as I don’t have any hot pink books!

Anyways, see ya!
