This is one of the pieces I bought which needed some work.Spent a bit of time trying out wood turning today, & after a few attempt managed a reasonable "leg" (not exact copy but as good as I'm likely to manage!) - it's a snug fit so I didn't have to glue it in either. Then used some mirror card to replace missing mirror - "aged" with acrylics.

This looks wonderful, I am very impressed by your wood-turning. The mirror ageing is really effective too.

Lovely job, Cath and I'm SO impressed that you turned it yourself. I have a mini turning thing (can't think what they're called!) but have never gotten to grips with it. The aged mirror is excellent too.

If you buy a cake at Christmas, it often has a gold band around it and the top is a possible source for fenders, cut off the top strip if it is scalloped - and actually that can have all sorts of uses around the mini house. Including a mini around a mini cake.

Thanks Rosemary, that's a great tip. Will see what I can find

Ideally this fireplace should have a paper fender - I use cake trim - you know, the gold embossed stuff. Maybe it is unobtainable now but there was a wonderful shop called Kettles that used to sell that and doylies in London not so very many years ago.
