The Half Scale Buttercup Cottage Dollhouse Day 5

I went ahead and assembled the furniture kit I ordered for this gingerbread dollhouse.

It is assembled in the same way any other dye cut furniture kit would be. I used a quick grab tacky glue for this set, the same I use on siding. I thought it would be easier to work with and have less drips.

Remember that when your assembling furniture kits of this type, you have to be very careful with glue if you plan on using stain as your finish. Glue does not stain so it will become visible once you apply it. Use the glue carefully and clean up often so you do not have this problem. You can stain your furniture first, before assembly, to avoid this, but keep in mind that stain can make it difficult for glue to adhere properly.

This half scale furniture kit is laser cut so you have to ahead for the dark, burnt, edges if you want to use stain. This is especially true if you want to stain the furniture a light colored stain. Though the edges of this furniture are not as dark as I've seen on other kits, they can still cause a problem with lighter stain choices.

Sanding down the edges to remove the burnt wood can cause your furnitures details to be lost and you might not get every area because of the small size of the pieces. If you have a rotary tool, you will fair much better with this option. Your other option is to choose a darker stain or try to color match the edges using paint if you plan on using a faux stain.

I am not using any stain. This furniture is going to be covered with the same "gingerbread" texture as the dollhouse. I might just use a lighter or darker shade to make it more visible. It depends on how they look together when done.
