Kitchen furnishings


I've raided my stash of furniture kits and took out a couple that I would not likely use otherwise.  For the kitchen area, I will make two Queen Anne Side Chairs from The House of Miniatures.  These are simple chairs with just enough interest.  I have sanded the legs, but I never fully round them as the instructions or photos show.  I like a bit of structure to cabriole legs even if it is not in keeping with the true style.  The foam in the kits has been damaged, but that is easily substituted.

The table kit has a resin top and wood legs.  I could not tell you where it came from, though.  :\  I bought it quite awhile ago.  The legs have extra length and are easily shortened as needed.  I'm not sure if I will paint the top or leave it white and just finish the legs and apron.  I like the small size of the table, 2 3/8" square.

As you can see, I still have to cut the legs to the final height.  I do like their lean shape, so I might substitute shorter legs and put these back in the stash.

Yes, the whole table does need to be shorter, but I do like your kitchen set.  I like the  chair legs; I wouldn't want them any more rounded.  You could go for an "enamel" top on the table, perhaps.  I just googled enamel top tables, and some of them have really pretty designs on the top.  I am used to the kind with a plain white top with black rim, but either could work nicely.  :-)  A design would be more work, but if there is a person on this forum who could do that, it's you.

Thanks so much! :D  I will definitely take a look at some examples.  It's always fun to experiment with new styles.
