Colonial Four Post Double Bed

by brae  

I had planned to make a different bed, but time constraints called for Plan B.  This is a kit from HBS, and it went together quickly and easily.  I used Minwax English Chestnut for the finish.

The kit included white twine to rope the bed.  The instructions tell you to cut the twine in equal parts, but the rope wasn't long enough.  :\  So, I used DMC 841 Light Beige Brown.  Saved me the trouble of having to tea stain the rope, and it worked just as well.  That's a House of Miniatures side table in progress, and the rug is from Manor House Minis.

Oh, so much left to do!  :O

Hi Brae!

How rude not to leave you with enough rope :-) Good luck with your deadline. Breathe…. You can do it, although I don’t know how you do it with sewing a complete outfit and blogging and well everything :-)

Thank you! :D

One of my friends asked me what I will build next, and I promptly fainted. :))

I going to need a week of naps after this is all over…and a cleanup crew. :yes:

I like that bed. You, dear, have wonderful taste.

You’ll make the deadline, I don’t doubt it a bit. Go, Brae, go!
