some new furniture

I have painted these couple of pieces of furniture for my house.

Firstly you can see the little table I made for the kitchen. I may give it a satiny finish, so it looks a little like it has been waxed. And a little sideboard I painted red. Not quite the right shade of red though, I don't think. I need to add something to the doors. It had clear plastic, but I think I will either add chicken wire or solid panels painted a different colour. Not sure about that one yet. And obviously the kettle will sit on the stove when I have one!

Next is the desk. It's darker than I thought it should be but I think when the walls have been aged a little and the ceiling painted, it will suit just fine. Now needs a desk chair!
