From the album: Furniture KitsI just finished my first attempt at making dollhouse furniture from a Realife miniature kit. It was pretty easy and fun. I messed up the pins that hold the doors in place, but once stuff gets displayed inside, I won’t attempt to open them again. I got the kit used so it was missing the drawer pulls. I used sewing pin heads instead.
From the album: A HermitageThis is a kit by Shannon at Red Cottage Miniatures and has the motif of the flowers and squirrel that is on the Nutcote house. I've painted this one with several light coats of Americana Light Buttermilk acrylic paint, stained the top with Miniwax Golden Oak stain marker, and coated the entire piece with Americana Duraclear Satin Varnish. I wanted a little bit of a shabby chic look. Her kits are so precisely cut they go together very nicely. I rushed a bit with this one and there are some flaws (on my part), but I’ll take more care with the next pieces. Shannon's kits have lasercut hardware. For the working drawers she has cute plates with handles, but I couldn’t resist using some of the flowers from the cut motifs as drawer pulls here. https://www.etsy.com/shop/RedCottageMiniatures?ref=l2-shopheader-name
From the album: A Few Other ThingsI made this half scale dresser from a Cassidy Creations kit some 20 years ago. It was one of my first attempts at making furniture from kits. At the time, I didn't know glue wouldn't take stains. You can see the areas around the joins where I got glue onto the surface of the wood. I also didn't know about sanding and polishing the pieces as part of finishing. So this piece had a rough surface texture, and I was not happy with the color I'd picked at the time or the finishing job. I decided to try refinishing and distressing it before selling or chucking it
