It’s easy to create this vibrant chair for toys and dolls with a little bit of help from Resene.
Resene Toys and Games with Mark Rayner - Project 35
Difficulty level: Moderate
You will need:
- 190mm x 20mm timber cut to the following lengths:
- 2 x 210mm (side supports)
- 2 x 500mm (back)
- 380mm (seat)
- 20mm x 20mm x 380mm
timber (top edge)
- 50mm panel pins and 65mm screws
- Clean cloth
- Drill with 3mm drill bit
To get the look: Mark painted the background wall with Resene SpaceCote Flat tinted to Resene Fringy Flower.
Other ideas: For a bright orange effect paint the chair with Resene Lustacryl tinted to Resene Hi Jinx.
Measure, mark and cut the timber to the dimensions listed above.
Clamp one of the side supports to the underside edge of the seat, as shown and fix with PVA glue and 65mm screws. Drill pilot holes first and countersink the screw heads. Repeat with the second side support.
Attach the back into position, as shown. Again, fix with PVA glue and 65mm screws, drilling pilot holes first and countersinking the screw heads.
Attach the top edge along the top of the back, as shown, fixing with PVA glue and 50mm panel pins. Punch the nail heads into the wood with a nail punch.
Fill the screw and nail heads with Resene EzyFill Quick and allow to dry.
Sand the entire chair and wipe off any sanding residue with a clean cloth.
Apply one coat of Resene Quick Dry to the chair and allow to dry.
Apply two coats of Resene Lustacryl tinted to Resene Gorse to the chair, allowing two hours for each coat to dry.
