Out with the old ...

I've bought this Mini Mundus kit years ago. But somehow I'm not happy anymore with these traditional, dark furniture pieces. There are great victorian or historical dollhouses out there but it's just not my cup of tea to collect them. I'm in love with unique, unusual and/or modern miniatures and thought this would make a good modern piece as well. I just sanded it down, painted it with enamel paint and gave it square mosaic pieces for handles. It's not perfect but I love it. I could picture it in a modern dollhouse - a bit chaotic with some of the drawers open and some clothing pieces hanging out of it.

Hello Cristine,
It looks great. You did a wonderful jo painting. it looks like a piece of furniture that has a lot of stories to tell. what a great way to breath new life into a classic piece. well done!
