This week I’ve been having a go at a little woodwork. I have built a desk! In 12th scale naturally…

I have a storyline in my Instagram account at the moment where the man of the house is looking for refuge, he’s had his eye on the attic room. 1

So this week the handyman has been in and has re-laid a wooden floor and hung some bold wallpaper. Mr Eugene Carter has been scouring the furniture salesrooms for a desk and furniture for his new room and found this! It’s in the style of Chinese Black Lacquer work.

I made the desk with some wood and my junior hacksaw, a bit of sandpaper and glue. I realise this will not be winning any prizes but it will (apart from you few readers) only ever be seen on the Instagram feed in a Willow filter so I hope the slight wonkiness will go unnoticed! The drawers are just for show – there is a limit to my carpentry skills.

Once I’d made it I returned to my comfort zone and painted it in black acrylic paint.

Then I sourced some patterns and picked a bit from here and a bit from there and started to decorate with these lovely gel pens (my new weakness) and once well and truly dry,  I varnished the whole thing.
Here he is buying the table – he’s got quite a bit of cash with him but I didn’t like to ask how much!
I then decorated a readymade little side table.

I must stop now – you can have too much of a good thing!

Thanks for reading,
back soon, Love Rosie
