The unpainted wooden Baby House.
The inside of the Baby House.
I love this piece of furniture and as I have said in previous posts I love the history behind these cabinets.
Firstly I sanded the whole cabinet down. Then I painted it with a coat of undercoat and sanded again. This was then followed by a coat of matt ivory paint and sanded yet again. Sanding inbetween each coat is so important to get the smmoth finish that gives a lovely tactile feel to the piece. I will keep adding coats of the ivory and sanding until I get the finish that I am happy with.
I have painted the insides and fronts of the drawers but not the sides or bottoms so that they will still pull out smoothly.
This is such a wonderful cabinet to work on, I cannot wait to start the inside decorations and furnishings.
I have also completed a few things which are now for sale in my Etsy shop, so please pop over and have a look what is for sale.
