This is the dressing table that I have made for the bedroom. It is my first attempt at proper furniture making, as I was particularly inspired to stop procrastinating, and actually try something.
The inspiration? This book - 'Reproducing Period Furniture and Accessories in Miniature'. I have to thank Elga for the reference, as a while ago she sent me a lovely email to encourage me to make some furniture, and, well - I have! So thank you very much Elga!
It is, however, my very first attempt, so very far from perfect, but it is a start, and I learnt so much in the process (though I still have so, so much more to learn!). The table is not in the book, but there are so many fantastic projects that I would like to make.... one day!
I couldn't leave it unadorned, so I made a simple table runner with a petit point bird
And a completely out-of-focus picture with a pencil for scale. I have to apologise for the appalling quality of the photos - sadly my camera died on holiday after an unfortunate meeting with a lake, so until I get a new one, I have to use my phone camera..
And finally, something for my extremely long wish list! A mirror from Lucy Askew, not in 12th scale, but in 24th scale, to make a lovely dressing table mirror. I think I'll have to wait until Christmas for that!
