HowTo: Make A Sideways Room


[Media: Article]

Take a look at this step-by-step Livejournal post which describes how to make your very own Sideways room.
The way this all got started was that metamouse and i were sitting around at dinner chatting about what to do for the upcoming room-to-room party. We went through a whole bunch of ideas for room themes. And then — you know how, sometimes when you're bored, you look up and imagine what it would be like if gravity turned upside down and you got to walk around on the ceiling? (Does everyone have this daydream?) Anyway, we both mentioned it at the same time, and then it dawned on us that we could make it happen. Or a variant, anyway. I think sideways actually works better than upside-down, because then you can integrate real people into the scene in strange ways.

There's a lot of really great details to notice here. Not only have they hung their furniture from the wall, but they've also added a lot of nice little touches. Newspapers, books and plates adorn the table while scarves and drapes are realistically arranged on the wall.

How wonderful!
