I've made wagon loads out of lego glued together NOT in the way they were designed. :lol:
I still need to cover them with some sort of tarp though but they do give interesting shapes.
Thanks

I just couldn't resist the purchase. The thought at the back of my head is maybe a furniture shop! With big glass windows to allow you to see the detail. My previous attempts at wallpapering rooms to been seen through a house window, proves to me there is no point in going in to highly detailed house furniture, as you cant see squat! So unless there is a great expanse of glass, no point. An alternate idea is to make castings of my own and if all else fails, flog 'em in years to come as a collectors item (they have to be worth way more than I paid for them now!)

I do see a market for packs of furniture rather then single items. How about pack A, pack B etc where each pack has a different assortment of items in it?

We all seem to have forgotten how to make stuff ourselves. If you look at furniture in your own house, it is mainly a series of rectangles fitted together into the shape required. Most bedroom furniture is rectangular, so why not just make up some boxes of the correct size using paper, then paint or colour then how you like. The same can be done for all types of furniture. Cookers, washing machines, chairs, sofas, bookcases can all be done easily.

There is always google images to give you ideas, and copy but remember about copyright of images. Carpets, pictures, clocks and lots of other things can be found.The hardest part is rescaling them to the correct size.
