How to Make a Doll Restaurant - The Decor

Here is a few decorating touches I added to Lola's Bistro...

I have a vase full of twigs and they always come in handy. I painted them white and hung them on the side walls. The back wall is for art from my viewers. We are accepting art from all ages and our viewers will vote for their favourite. We will use your art to hang in restaurant and in the new dorm rooms.

 I love how they turned out.

 I wanted the lighting to be special. I found these two Christmas ornaments at Value Village, as soon as I saw them I knew they would be perfect. To secure the lighting (ornaments) I made a hole on the ceiling and ran the string through and glued a piece of wood over it.

I found these wood piece at a garage sale this past summer. I stained them and glued them to the wall then added the mirror over it.

The doorway on the left is the door to the kitchen that doesn't exist. I wanted somewhere for the serving staff to come out of, plus that is where they get the drinks and the bill etc... I wanted the space for tables and seating.

To cover the doorway to the fake kitchen, I used these silver ball garlands I got from dollar store.

I love how the doorway turned out. The silver curtain balances the lighting.

I will be posting about the bench in the next post.

The Door...

Oops...time to change the blade...

Start gluing your popsicle sticks to the cardboard. I used hot you fingers, hot glue is crazy hot... try following the same pattern on each side of door.

I glued a piece of plastic to mimic a window.

I Just finished the sign and address number.

The next post will be the final one, the furniture and the finished look.
There will be a video on our YouTube channel plus a little stop motion clip at the end.

Thank you for visiting my blog, tell me what you think of the new restaurant.
