After searching through my miniature
hoard 'stash' I decided to make a table and chairs from scratch for the Salon.
I probably could have found a table and chairs that would fit there but sometimes
I just feel like making stuff!😂
For the chairs I looked at the instructions in Lea Frisoni's book.
I didn't have everything that she used to make her beautiful chairs but I was able to improvise.
Do what you can with what you have!
Cardboard, toothpicks, thin cord and jump rings!
I've had that fabric for a long time.
This just seemed the right time to use it.
When I started out I was going to make two chairs at the same time
but it was challenging working on just one chair.
I almost didn't want to make another one but
I laboured through.
The legs on one are a little wonkier than the other...that's usually how things work out here!
Actually I made the table first but the pictures ended up the wrong way around in the blog post.
I liked the size of the little table that Kim Saulter sent me years ago so
I measured the table top around it.
That piece that looks like a pedestal just somehow turned up here.
Things like that just seem to happen!
That little black cap I attached under the table top just happened to fit perfectly on the top of the pedestal!!!
A little stain and paint.
Somehow I ended up with the colour I wanted.
Tiny things bring me great joy!
I hope you're all having a good week and thanks for stopping by to join me on the Maisonnette journey!
