Tin Man


The fine folks at Minimum World Dolls House Furniture Ltd contacted me about doing a feature on their unfinished furnishings and sent me a bare wood blanket chest free to try.

I painted the chest a base color of Heritage Brick mixed with Staining Medium, both by Americana.  I found wonderful art on The Graphics Fairy to add to the chest.  I also cut pieces of parchment paper for the interior and used a tiny bit of Antiquing Medium to age the crevices and give some depth to the piece.

Now I have a delightful country blanket chest for books and other treasures.  The books are from L. Delaney, and the tin man doll is from Sir Thomas Thumb.

I am very pleased with the end result and would definitely recommend giving their unfinished furniture a try.

Oh my, I know this post is about your chest, but I'm afraid the tin man is stealing the show! Adorable!
