I try to keep my blog free of personal issues but shortly after my last post I unexpectently lost a very close family member who was a great supporter of my miniature work. So it has been hard to get back into blogging. I had begun to work on the second floor of the building that houses the bakery. This is an old bar converted into a coffee shop and cafe. I started with white Hobby Lobby cafe sets by spray painting them with hammered metal texture in bronze and brown. I also painted the base of the bar stools.

I made a custom logo rug for the bakery. I used a cloth covered printer paper designed especially for ink jet printers. I enlarged the design on the computer to the size I wanted and printed the design on the computer printer fabric paper. I bought the paper from JoAnn's craft store in the fabric department. I drew a circle around the image and cut it out. I used a black foam sheet for the backing and glued the logo to the foam and used the same purple cord from the awning to trim the rug.
