Chest of Drawers or is it a Dressing Table?

I have two chest of drawers that are part of a Bedroom set, which I am going to distress for the Triang Princess [2] Bedroom.     The knobs have been removed from each of the drawers and the varnish on the base and drawers have been sanded down. The instructions on the chalk paint…

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…

Pine Side Table

This is a lovely 1/12 scale Pine Side Table which has been stripped of varnish and polished with antique wax. The antique wax giving it a more aged and warm feel to the pine. It has also decorated on the top, sides and drawer front with transparent cherub paper. The back panel of the Side…

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…
