My Secret Wish

Okay, I'm starting to realize how much I love mini furniture. And I think it's because I have a secret wish to create furniture in real life. If I had the means to do so, I think I'd be making all sorts of real size hutches and cabinets. But for now, doing it in mini will satisfy.

Again, I can't say I actually built this piece of furniture, but I did bring it from non-working to working...and painted it. So it sort of counts as me making it. The drawers were just a faux front before, and now they are working. I took the whole thing apart and then glued it back together except for the drawers. Then I separated the faux drawer into three parts and built boxes for them. It was a lot of fun actually. Anyway, I'm not sure where it will go, but for now it looks nice in this room.

My sweet hubby made me the little pink pitcher. It was his first try at making mini anything. I think it turned out pretty cute for a first try. I crocheted the little doily it's on, and I made the clock as well from a picture off the Internet. All rather shabby I think.
This is what I started with.

And this is what I ended with.
