A Miniature Kitchen for Our Gnomies

Painting Furniture For Forest Friends 3

As I have mentioned in the past, I am trying to make accessories to go with the miniature tree house that we are planning to buy Dora for her birthday. Up to this point, we’ve purchased a set of Gnomies, made the leaf and flower blankets and pillows, needle felted some stepping stones, and purchased some seasonal stackers, trees, bushes, and mushrooms on Etsy (were I to do this over again, I would at least make the mushrooms myself).

So now, we’re moving on to setting up a kitchen for our little friends. This time, Dora did some of the painting herself and boy has that made her feel very proud of herself! I had previously ordered a variety wood pieces from Casey’s Wood Products. Some of these, we used as is, but for things such as the table and chairs, I hot-glued a few items together. We then painted these items with Delta brand soy paints and polished them with beeswax furniture polish. As a note, if you ever use beeswax polish, you may be worried that the item is too oily. If you let it sit overnight, however, the wood should absorb the oil and you will be left with just a slight shine (the photo above was taken immediately after polishing the items).
