This is the furniture items after one coat of Dark Oak stain & wiping the excess off with a tissue. I really like how they turned out! I think I will add one more coat though to the drawer in the hall table so it matches the sides a bit better, due to the different wood textures. Then I will glue on the handles.
I made the mini hosta plant following a tutorial on weloveminiatures.com. I dowonder if the pot is slightly too big for the plant (I have three matching pots and that's the biggest) but oh well maybe the owners put it in this pot so the plant can "grow" into it.
