Daisy House Wall Hutch

by brae  

So, the Creatin' Contest 2013 begins!  I have an idea what most of you will guess I am building, but I hope you'll still be surprised a little in the end.  In the meantime, I can share the furnishings I build along the way since they won't give away the whole idea.

I started with a Daisy House Wall Hutch kit.  I had bought this for the Newport kitchen so I could display fancy plates and such but never ended up finishing that room before it sold.

Space will be minimal in my kitchen, so this shelf is perfect at 11/16" deep.  There is plenty of room for plates, bottles and even canned or packaged food as long as the depth is thin.  The silver platter and bottle were purchased, but I don't recall where.

The windmill plate is by Peiwen Petitgrand.  I just love the detailing.

I opted for blue, which I mixed myself from Slate Green by Americana and French Ultramarine Blue by Liquitex since I didn't have a good blue on hand.  I buffed the paint away in areas to add a little character and then sealed the piece with Delta Ceramcoat satin varnish.

Unfortunately, these kits are no longer being made, but you can find them at many dollhouse shops still.  They are good quality kits that take very little effort to end up with a great result.

Such a beautiful kit this is. Thanks for sharing, perhaps I can try and make one my own some day….
The blue you mixed yourself is very pretty!

Too funny, I had the same thing in mind for the Newport kitchen! I bought some beautiful plates to display in there if I ever get it done.

I love the color you made, it is beautiful!

Every time I come here to post a comment, I get stuck reading older posts and I’m lost in the beautiful houses you’ve created.
So even though you may not know it, I’m here somewhere getting acquainted with your beautiful owl and all the other beautiful things that are hiding in the archives….
