This take on setting up the diorama (what I call my quick up and down rooms using a cardboard box) was inspired by Muff's blog post regarding a how to fold a box. I can use the same box I used before (Dr. McNeil's office) and give it a little more depth and space, which turned out to be great for this setting. Thank you, Muff!
So, here are the photos of the diorama.
Side view of the bar.
Below is the room with some, yet to be introduced, residents enjoying the space.
The ladies thought they'd pose for the camera and then go back to enjoying themselves afterwards.
Here are what the bar, stools and bench started as.
I used the napkin holder for the bar. I flipped it upside down, added shelves to hold the liquor, put two covered cubes on to lift and hold the table top and glued it into the bottom of the butter dish.
I just made a seat and placed it on top of the lid flipped upside down. I didn't glue it together yet because I'm considering if I want to put anything inside. I thought about putting lights in side, which could be cool and add atmosphere with dimmed lights.
I'm torn as to whether this should be a home bar or a public bar. It's a little small for a public bar, but maybe it could be for limited events, including social hours with pre-sold tickets. Yes, I actually think these things through because I think they should be realistic. I have issues.
I'm open to suggestions/votes on which way to go - private (in someone's home) or public. Let me know what you think.
Thanks for stopping by. ~ Jaye
