Sorry I haven't posted for a few days -- we're gearing up here for our Opera Festival and things have been busy :)
Yesterday I found the time to stain the furniture for Mum's roombox. I had found a suggestion online that new, pale mahogany can be made to look like old, rich mahogany by using Minwax's Gel Stain in Brazilian Rosewood, so I got a little can and gave it a go.
This is with one coat of varnish, so they need to be sanded and varnished again, but I really like the colour! Now I have to pick a fabric for the chair ...
And I was playing with some of the new pieces I bought in England, so here's a picture of them on my William and Mary dresser!
Available in Etsy shop - Don't often make children dolls, but every now and then get the urge. This tiny little girl is available in my Etsy shop now.
