Daybed change

by brae  

The daybed I've been using in The Artist's Studio is one that I had in my stash and wasn't necessarily meant for this space.  I painted it burnished copper to coordinate better with the other furnishings.

The problem with it is that even though it's a good size for the room, it's not really a daybed so much as a settee.  My model can't comfortably recline on it.

I have a sofa kit in my stash of furniture kits that might work better.  It's from the Realife Miniatures Country Living Room kit.

I've wanted to build this sofa for awhile now, so today I put it together.  I've been spoiled by House of Miniatures and precision laser cut kits.  The fit is sloppy in places, but paint will take care of that!

This sofa is shorter but wider than the original settee, and my model seems much more comfortable.

It fits well in the space, too.  :D

The copper settee will have no problem finding a new home.  I already have an idea for it.  ;D

I love it. You say it's shorter? It looks longer to me than the original settee. Unless it's the camera! Now I must go and google that company you mentioned who made the kit. I've never heard of them.

Thanks! :D I love it, too! It's shorter as in "less tall" but definitely wider/longer than the original. The Realife kits are vintage - but you can find them on etsy and eBay. :yes:

Yes, I love the new day bed. Thanks for the tip about the Realife kits. I was totally unfamiliar with these kits as I've avoided any furniture that I'd have to assemble myself. That's not in my skill set. But I LOVE the day bed, and your model is very cute!

That's a nice piece of furniture and your model looks very much at home there.
