Much like my farmhouse-inspired laundry room, this bathroom roombox started with a Pinterest board and a vision of a neutral, soothing space to relax and unwind. I began work on this over a year ago, and it sat unfinished save for a few details. Sometimes, when inspiration isn’t coming, I walk away from a project for a while before going back to it with a new sense of direction. That’s definitely what happened here, and I’m so glad I finally got around to finishing it!
I made most of the details myself, but I have a list of other resources at the bottom of the post if you are looking for certain supplies.
Let’s take a tour, shall we?

I’m so excited to announce the grand opening of Magnolia Hollow! When I first saw this fabulous shop kit from The Curated Farmhouse, I immediately imagined a seasonal home decor store and since fall is my favorite season, I thought it was the perfect time to get started. Next, I got to work on the store’s branding and design. I chose one of my favorite flowers, the magnolia, as the motif for the design, and I love the soft, muted neutral shades that go with it.
So, let’s go on a little tour of the exterior of the shop today!
But first, what grand opening would be complete without balloons and a ribbon cutting ceremony?
I made the marigolds from a kit from Moonflower Miniatures, and the amazing hanging planters came from My Mini Front Porch, too. I love the pop of color they brought to the exterior.
This shelf was part of the shop kit, and it’s a great way to display some additional products outside. I made the trucks from ornaments I got at Hobby Lobby. I designed all the labels, signage, packaging and tea towels myself. I used actual agate slices to make the serving trays, and beads to make the fragrance diffusers. The candle warmer on the top shelf actually lights up, too!
I sculpted the pumpkins for the trucks from polymer clay, and I used dried flowers, as well. The beautiful little potted mums came from Mimi’s Mini Boutique Co.
This little standing display was also included with the shop kit, and I thought it would be the perfect place to display all those little impulse buys: soaps, scent sachets, magazines, potpourri, etc.
I love cinnamon pine cones, so I used tiny little alder cones to make my own packages of them.
I designed the Magnolia Hollow Living magazines and the calendars, as well. I also made tiny little pumpkins from polymer clay in mesh bags as vase filler. And let’s not forget the bags of potpourri!
I even made little branded shopping bags, because… why not?
I hope you enjoyed the tour of the outside of Magnolia Hollow! Stay tuned for a look at everything inside!
A few months ago, I started working on a new roombox in between other projects. I had a garden scene in mind, and plenty of flower kits in my stash, so it seemed like a perfect fit! This weekend, I finally put the finishing touches on my corner garden, and I’m truly thrilled with how it turned out.
I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t garden AT ALL in real life, so I mainly based it on what I thought looked pretty!
The Corner Garden
All of the flowers were made from kits, laser cut sheets or my own designs cut on my Cricut Maker.
I made the brick beds following the same basic process outlined in my brick walkway tutorial. I also used foamcore covered in soil to plant all the flowers in the beds.
One of my favorite aspects of this scene is the dirt and grime I added to the tools, gloves, clogs, etc. That little detail adds such a sense of realism! I shared some of the products I used for weathering in a list of resources at the end of this post.
I really enjoyed making the birds for this scene. I’ve had a hummingbird visiting my backyard lately, so I was inspired to create a tiny little ruby-throated hummingbird to perch on the feeder.
I had it in my mind from the very start that I wanted to include a mischievous dog digging around in the garden, so I made sure to work that in to my plans. Luckily, I found an adorable little furred dog that worked perfectly, and I just love it!
And I couldn’t resist a little hedgehog, so why not?
When I was deciding what bird to include for this feeder, I was pretty much set on making a bluebird. However, when I started sculpting, I changed my mind at the last minute and decided to make a cardinal.
Now, I think it was kismet because cardinals are supposed to represent loved ones who have passed, and we lost our beautiful 17-year-old cat last week… so maybe this can be a small symbol of comfort in our time of grief.
I just happen to think chickadees are adorable, so I made one for the bird bath.
Since I hid a few little dandelions throughout the garden, I thought a sign about the weeds would be a cute addition.
I wanted to make a piece of wall decor that looked like wrought iron, so I made this sign on my Cricut Maker with black cardstock!
I made the wind chime from a bead cap, seed beads, a butterfly charm, and bugle beads.
I hope you enjoyed your visit to my little corner of sunshine! If you have any questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Many thanks to my husband, Tom, for his assistance with some of the photos on this post!
