Kitchen Base Units

The rooms in this house are quite big, so it is not a good idea to use Triang furniture. So I am going to furnish each room in 12th scale furniture. I have various pine kitchen base units, to use in the Kitchen of my Triang Princess Doll House. I want to make each piece…

Desk

I have used chalk paint on most of my furniture, but when I started to sand down this desk, the wood under the varnish was lovely. The handles are gold and green, and the drawers are lined with green velor. There is not a lot to say about this desk, it’s just a wonderful natural…

Kitchen Table

This is a table I have chosen for my Triang Princess Dolls house. It is probably not the style I would have chosen but the height against the kitchen units is about right. The table I liked was the same height as the kitchen units, but I felt that a lower one looked better, as…

Retro Bureau

I had a couple of these bureau/desk with opening flap, so I thought I would have a play around with one of them. I was undecided of the colour paint to use, so random it would be.  Just selecting colours whether they matched or not.  As the chalk paint colours are mainly pastel shades, they…

Kitchen Shelf

I thought I would have a rummage around in my spare bits and pieces box, to see if I could find anything wooden to paint.  I found this little wooden shelf, complete with kitchen tools. I painted a base coat of light blue and a top coat of clotted cream chalk paint. Then painted the tools…

Shabby Chic Dressing Table

This Dressing Table is the latest of my miniature creations. I have found the Chalk Paint can be a bit thick for this small furniture, so this time I added some water to thin it down a bit.  I did have to use a few more coats but seemed to be better on the decorative legs….

Miniature Server

This is a lovely 1/12 scale Server, I have painted it in light and dark blue, over an undercoat of  white chalk paint. The server has been distressed with sandpaper, in some places I have gone down to the wood.  I think it gives quite a good effect as it shows both layers of paint.  The…

Kitchen Dresser

This was a piece of furniture I bought with a Dolls House [build your own] Magazine.  I thought it was made of wood, but it was actually made from painted plastic.  I managed to separate each part of the dresser/display cabinet, as it was easier to paint.  Being plastic it had little plastic lugs on each…
