The addition of Pages and a magazine piece

I've added Pages to the right hand column.  The first contribution is the piece I've just written for an on-line magazine called Dolls Houses Past and Present 

I was asked to write about building the ELF kitchen.  The published piece will probably bear no resemblance to this - we shall see.

A bit of something...

I have found it impossible to get two chairs to match the four dining chairs I already have so I have finally given up and settled for two which nearly match.  Technically, right now, they are just pieces of wood as I have to make them.  Construction and upholstery is a doddle for me but I am a bit twitchy about the staining and polishing of the wood to get a good finish.  If anyone has any tips please email me or post a comment here.  I am keen for any and all information I can get from a 'real' person - I have done all the web trawling I want to do on the subject I just need the confidence shove.  Since buying these I have gone on to buy a load more stuff in white wood that I need to finish in various ways.  So keep your eyes open for the extended cursing here and in Le Tout Paris.
