This project has been a long time in the making. It was many years ago that I first talked to Pit Ginsburg at Bespaq about producing his lovely babyhouse in a size that would accomodate quarter scale furniture. With the help of Shawn Flading at Bespaq, that dream has become a reality. This beautiful 17" cabinet has been produced exclusively for Cynthia Howe Miniatures. It is an exquisite piece to house your very favorite quarter scale pieces.
To introduce the new cabinet, we have designed an online project/kit. We have taken our new cabinet and illuminated it with LED lighting, so each room is warmly lit. We have then filled each room with a new and original furniture set. I've coordinated and custom printed fabrics, wallpapers and rugs for each room.
Lots of research has gone into developing our new line of quarter scale furniture kits. Using Bespaq quality as our standard, we decided that we wanted to create kits that would be as beautiful and detailed as those produced by Bespaq. This means delicate hardware, REAL, DELICATE cabriole legs, beautiful to finish cherry wood, custom designed and printed fabrics and intricate delicate carvings. Take a look at the many photos below and get a feel for the fabulous quality of these new designs.
The online class kit includes the 17" baby house, lighting kit, kits for 7+ full rooms of furniture, cherry doors for every room, wallpapering, rugs, and artwork. The cost for these items if purchased separately comes to over 620.00 so the class is a great bargain if you want to complete this project.
The Quarter Scale Babyhouse Class/kit includes everything shown in the photos below. You will need only basic tools and supplies such as paints, stains, brushes and glues. I have not yet added all of the details to my house that make it complete... books on the shelves, plants and flowers, food, and all the other tiny details. So that you can accessorize along with me, I am starting a pinterest page where I will post photos and tutorials of all of the accessories that I source or make to complete my house. I'm going to be looking for sources for the finest of quarter scale accessories to finish this project and will share each find and technique with you.
I have a limited number of these cabinets from the first production run, so space in this class is extremely limited. Cabinets will be available for purchase as a stand alone item in the near future, but for now, all existing stock is being held for this class project. And it won't last long!! Please remember that this is a large, and fragile item, so we will pack it accordingly for shipment. Shipping costs may be a bit higher than normal but we want these to all arrive in good condition. We will allow you to select fed ex ground for your ship method if it is more economical. All methods and prices will be displayed at check out based on your location.
