For the future castle

I used photos of some better quality mini furniture for inspiration. They had a lot of carving and I don't carve. So I embossed some metal sheeting instead to give the effect of carved wood.
I added pieces to trim the arms of the throne and then painted everything dark brown. I added some antiquing gel to give a woodgrained effect.
The armoire got Tudor style feet and new skirting. I think both pieces turned out pretty well - especially since I was only using materials I had on hand.

I like the idea of embossing. Your cabinet and chair look great!

That is a lovely idea! They turned out very rich looking. I love them!

Thank you, ladies! Sometimes you just have to improvise to get the look you want. That's why mini making is so fun. :)
