Tea was often served in the CRM drawing room. The furniture arrangement we see in photos these days shows a tea table and two chairs across from a built in sofa. Similar furniture pieces were part of my order from Pop-Up Cards in Scotland.
During our Eugene Miniatures Club meeting by Zoom I punched them out and did a dry fit. The next morning this is what I found on my desk…
I love the distinctive design and the beautiful shadows they made in the morning sun. I took them apart and sanded the few rough spots, then glued them back together.
Next I filled the assembly holes with spackle, and sanded again.
I sprayed on a coat of gray primer and lightly sanded them. Pretend I didn’t paint the table legs before remembering to take a photo.
I used craft paint to make them black and then gave them a satin finish with several coats of wipe-on poly. If this was a real life project, I would use a sponge brush. Thinking small, I snipped a piece from a fun foam scrap and used my reverse tweezers to dip it into a small plastic container with a small amount of the poly. It worked perfectly for getting a smooth application and getting into the small crevices.
Cuppa tea anyone?
