If you want to really bring out the details and antique it back just a bit...go to the craft store and get the cheapest brown paint there is.  You water it down some in a small trash container, just like a Tablespoon of paint and four Tbsps of water, and just slop it all over the frame.  Then with a soft rag, just rub and buff off the top area, don't get down into all the deep areas.  It will make it really pop.  If it isn't dark enough, do it again and let it stay on just a bit longer.  Too dark?  Before it gets really good and dry, take a rag and really go after it, lifting some more of the paint off.  I really enjoy doing this to furniture that I want to revamp and yet keep older looking.  If you decide to do it, post pictures again.  It is a lovely pc!!!

Hope I am doing this correctly, I am new to Craftster.  I just joined because of your felt food.  I have now done a bunch and just wanted to thank you for getting me motivated!!  I broke a toe in such a way that I had to be off my feet for several weeks and this gave me something creative (besides my painting) to do.  I have great niece and nephews, but no grandkids yet, one day though....  Will see if I can post some pics later.  Thanx again for a wonderful posting!!!

could have sworn that I uploaded a pic, but I can't find it on the site, so I will try to put it right here.  I did get ideas from all over the internet, but I don't think that I copied any one pattern completely.  I am more of a feel and do as I go type person.  The basic cookie shapes were found somewhere, but then I altered and didn't put the side pcs on.  I think everything else is pretty basic, just look at food and start drawing it out.  For fruit that is wedged, make the two flat parts first and then just kept making a petal shape on paper until I got one that fit the curve correctly.  Bread and other stuff, trace the real think.  Really easy stuff, all blanket stitched, just time consuming.  Hope you are inspired.  Would love to hear some feedback on improving it or whatever.

I am new and it is showing.  go to my website for a picture.  www.picturetrail.com/tinkartist     thanx.
