Witchy Chic furniture

Hello again dear readers,

This time I'm going to show you how I created furniture for Baalatova from craft sticks and wooden
pieces I had at hand.  I now realize that this whole project will be nearly made from scrap materials I had at hand.

The candelabra is a gift from Birgit .  The potion jars are beads.  The cork stoppers are  punched-out circles from a cork sheet. I used a regular office punch. Two circles glued together make a stopper.

These are the parts I used for the table's leg.
A wooden drawer knob, A large wooden bead and a wooden disc glued one on top of the other.

The top is a large wooden disc I received from a friend long ago.

These are the pieces the shelf unit is made from.  I used 8 large craft sticks.  These wooden sticks are too thin for furniture.  I had to glue two together clumping them firmly overnight.  I cut two for the
side of the unit. From the other two I cut the shelves.  My work is not perfect but it will look good
when filled with  magic bottles, etc.  The ornamental wooden top is something that came in a bag of
wooden scraps I bought from a fellow miniaturist who left the country.

Shelf unit assembled.

I made window frames for the two windows in the house, one for indoors and one for outdoor. Between the two I installed a clear piece of perspex.

I also installed ceiling beams.  Baalatova must have somewhere to sleep and I think she'll be
comfortable in a hammock  hanging from the beams.  The beams strengthen the structure of the box.
I plan to add a roof to give the box a  spooky look.

Now there are good news about Baalatova, she was seen limping on her way home.  It will take her
a long time to get there without being able to fly on her broom and she can't get a new working broom without her magic wand.  Big problem!!
Soon we're going to meet her on her way.

A very warm welcome to my new followers,  Laurie M, Anna F S.  and Monique.  Thank you so much for following.

Blessings to you all
