The beauty and durability of wooden furniture can give you a moment of perfect joy but when you see a scratch on it when you get home one day, there's a very high possibility that you will feel annoyed and uncomfortable. The same is the case with wooden dollhouse furniture.
The painting of ornate and intricately crafted pieces of wood furniture should really be done by experienced furniture painters, if you want to be assured of a thorough and proper finish. For the vast majority of wooden furniture however, especially those that are somewhat simple in design, you can probably take on the job yourself. Dollhouse will first need to apply some primer. Brush the primer in a light one direction motion and allow drying for the next coat. This primer can hide small nicks and cracks to come up with a nice flat surface finish. It will also assure you of a good paint adhesion. Next, choose from any of the many available colors of paint available, but make sure that it complements the room that the furniture will be placed in. Mostly you will need two or more coats of paint. Again brush the paint lightly and avoid fast build up that results to dripping, let the paint dry off a bit before doing another coat. The paint that we do in dollhouse will be a part of the treasure that the kid always keeps with them.
There are manufacturers of dollhouse that make these pieces to resell to distributors or retailers. When looking for unfinished furniture, ask retailers if they have a source available or catalog to browse through, if there are no samples on display. Also, many different manufacturers advertise their dollhouse furniture products online through the Internet and this is a great place to not only find what is available, but to price compare, as well. There are also many wood artists for dollhouse that build pieces, such as dining tables and chairs or coffee tables, and often the artists will leave their works unfinished, giving the buyer the ability to finish the piece in anyway they choose. Dollhouse collectables may also be businesses that recondition old pieces, leaving the finishing process to the consumer. Try several avenues until the right pieces can be found within the budget. The entire process of finding a chair or desk to stain or paint can be fun and exciting, as the design process begins to formulate in the mind.
