Cozy reading roombox

Wow, this is really looking good!  Love your book idea.  The wood, oar and rug all look great.  I'd go with foam and fabric for the chaise, too, but I don't have the tools for shaping wood, and I'm terrible at polymer clay.

I've been patiently waiting to see the oar. Love it!

I like the idea of gluing the printed rug to poster board. Much more realistic than cloth alone.

      I decided to add a little lamp to the room box so It would serve 2 purposes.
      The roof was a DIY faux verdigris on cardboard.
      I really wanted to add chatskis on top of the cabinets, but I really want to start the Laurel!

    • First Roombox Disaster - Help?
      By Leoin
      Hey guys! I started making my first roombox (a kitchen) last week out of foam core after seeing a few tutorials listed as using it. I added my wood flooring and wallpaper before putting the box together, and when I came back after a few days to look at the finished dried product everything was horribly warped. I attempted to glue it together and force it to straighten out since I was desperate, but that didn't end so great. Now I'm just discouraged.

      How do you go about making a roombox out of foam board? I just stumbled across something that said to glue/paper the backside too, but I don't see how that would prevent warp. Should I have glued it all together first? I have plenty of matboard, but since that is thinner, wouldn't it also warp?

      I really want to try my hand at making my own rooms, and I have no access to any kind of tool that would cut sturdier wood. Advice/links appreciated.

      Created 1:12 scale roombox in a wine box that sits on its side. Will put plexiglass in place of wooden slide-in lid. I do use double sided craft tape for attaching wallpaper. The double sided tape does not show through on the thicker scrapbook paper, but it does show through on the thin wallpaper sample. Will put more on this wall to break up the tape lines. I did trim one side of the marble top side table as I am using it for a desk and needed to slide a chair under. The House of Miniature kits are so much fun to put together, but after working mostly with half scale the pieces looked so huge at the start of this project. More accessories yet to be added.
