Little Modern Farmhouse Master Bedroom & Giveaway

It's the final Dollhouse Therapy reveal day with my friends Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Alice from Thoughts from Alice and Emy from Semigloss Design.  We also have a great giveaway from Miniatures.com that you can enter at the bottom of this post.  

I didn't quite finish my dollhouse in time, but I do have the the bedroom to share with you today as well as a sneak peek at the living room.  I ran out of time a little since we headed off to Finland for 3 1/2 weeks in the middle of this month.  I'll be sure to share updates as I finish off the last couple of rooms in the dollhouse.  
For the bedroom the main piece that I made was this bed.  I decided that a low modern bed would work well for this modern farmhouse.  I cut the pieces from basswood and used small dowels for the legs.  I sewed the bed linens using a few different prints including a Marimekko Luovi blue and a white throw pillow.  My mom crocheted the round cushion.  The artwork you may recognize from the kitchen, but I tried it in the bedroom and really liked how the colours worked with the bedding and decided to leave it there.
The bedside sconces were made from wooden beads, dowels and small squares of craft wood.  I started by sanding one end of the bead down to make a flatter end so it would look more like a real lamp shade.  Hubby then drilled some holes near the top of the bead to accommodate the "arm" (dowel).  He also drilled small holes into the square "mounting plates" (craft wood) for the other end of the dowel to go into.  The whole assembly was then mounted to the wall.  I added small pieces of baker's twine to mimic electrical cords.
This room has a full light door that I'd still like to add a balcony too, but you do get to see another angle of the bed and sconces from this side. :)

The dresser in the room was a little furniture makeover project.  I had a small Queen Anne style dresser that I took the legs and hardware off of.  I painted it white and then added dowel legs and "bar pulls" (black wire) with beads for a much more modern look.  I gave the flower pot a little two-tone paint job to add another hint of blue.
A little shot of the three finished upstairs rooms.
Here's a sneak peek at the living room.  I managed to give the fireplace a new "marble" surround.  I also made a sofa.  I tried to make it look like our own Muuto Rest sofa.  I think it resembles it a little.  I even used the same Maharam fabric that is on our real sofa.  The rug is also made from some wool fabric.  I sewed the pieces together using an overlock type stitch and my mom helped me with the tassels on the end.  She also knit that little cushion.  I still have to add some side tables, coffee table, chairs, artwork, etc. before this space will be done, but I thought I'd give you a peek inside since I had originally hoped to be able to finish this room as well this month.
One last look at the room that I actually did finish! ;)
