Entryway progress

For the chair, I updated a mahogany and red velvet chair from Concord Miniatures.  This was part of the box of minis my friend gave to me when he helped me cut my garage panels.  In order to remove the cushion, I popped the chair into the microwave and then gently pried up the pad.  I upholstered the pad without removing the velvet since the cotton was thin and needed the extra padding.  With a coat of black paint and a fresh green cotton print, it has a much more contemporary look.

For the side table, I painted another Concord Miniatures creation.  This table looked dated in its original brown stain, and it had a bad place in the finish besides.

The lines of the table work well in black, again leaning toward a more contemporary look.  The vase and bowl are from Manor House Minis.  The paper flowers were a clearance item from Michael's; I used only a few of the flowers that came in the bunch.  Under the vase is a single venise lace flower left over from my faux crochet afghan project.

That's a set of keys on a ring in the bowl.  Those are from S P Miniatures.
