So I wanted to design a mad scientist's lab, but wanted it to be cute and fun because I imagined it belonging to a super smart and cool middle school girl (I was thinking specifically of Janie, the science-lovin' bff of Harriet, yes, of "Harriet the Spy"). So this room is a bit madcap with its mix of sciences (an English teacher put it together, after all), but the room also has plenty of girlishness (hello pink in the amazing vintage biology wall chart up at the top of this post).
And, I know, I went a little nuts with this week's room. But I was so nerdy excited about the idea of it and I found so many neat things on Etsy that I could not pass up. It definitely is one of the favorite rooms that I've done for our Thursday Etsy posts.
Anyway, does anyone else think that one heck of a cute monster could be made in this room?
The basics for an evil genius:

"Vintage glass jars" via bluebellbazaar
"Vintage E. H. Sargent Red Litmus Paper Glass Vials" via MachoMachismo
I don't know much about biology (or robotics or chemistry), but the following things seem to make a lovely starter kit for making a buddy for Frankenstein's monster:
"Velvet Dental Case" (with teeth!) via Hindsvik
"4 Tiny Vacuum Tubes" via BookBasement
"Happy Crocheted Heart" by taterutus
And because a girl has to have interests aside from the animation of bodies:

A scientist needs some beautiful walls too:

And, of course, our girl needs a lab assistant:
