Making Christmas, making Christmas


Well no not really I already put all the decorations away and the house is back to normal. Er well as normal as the mini addict can be.  I just had that song stuck in my head for the last 6 hours. I wanted to show you a couple of things I just finished. I decided I didn’t like the half round table in the entry/hall of my witch’s house so since I have a (cough) few kits setting around I made a buffet table and another writing table. These kits go together fairly well as long as you follow the directions and use the right glue.  Now some of you may or may not know glue and I are not always the best of friends. Case in point with the buffet table, I could not find the bottle of wood glue. I think it ran away but that’s my theory. So I tried tacky glue and was going well until after I painted the first coat of paint and then starting sanding. One of the legs fell off and then another.  Then after I’m sure the wood glue had decided I had been tortured enough the bottle suddenly showed up and I could glue the legs back on.  The writing desk I swear went better and the wood glue stayed on the craft table long enough for me to finish it. I used black and brown paint then sanded between each layer. I’m curious though… What do you think, do you prefer these two that look more like natural stained wood or the other one I made in the last post that was white and green?  I like both but I think it depends on the setting/room they would go in. Ok I’m off to go lock down the glue bottles.

Really fun post! Looks like you're getting super productive, putting together kits and finishing them entirely. I'm quite impressed. I seem to never get that far. Good--you're motivating and inspiring me, Jennybee! :-) xo Jennifer

I also really good like this look. The furniture appear as very heavy, quality furniture. They look very expensive. Very well done.
