A funny little chair emerged from the dollhouse furniture trunk – another home made item from the ancestral dollhouse. This one was too dangerous to be played with as it had wood splinters and rusted nails poking out. In fact it looked a bit like baby bear’s chair after Goldilocks was through sitting in it!
Min begged the human to help her fix it, so first the rusty nails holding the seat back to the uprights were snipped off, leaving little stubs.
Min then flipped the chair back over so the splinters were below and the painted edge at the top…
…white glue was applied to the sides of the chair back…
…and the chair back pressed into the nail stubs. Elastics were wound tightly round the entire back to hold it while the glue dried.
Next day the chair was still wonky…but at least it was safe to be sat upon, and with the addition of a little felt seat pad…
It was perfect!
