Hello guys, it's nice to see you all back again. Today, I am going to show you an awesome idea.
I was wondering from a long time about making a large cup of coffee, a large guitar, etc. but, one day, an idea shot up my mind. I thought of making a mini table and chair set and it turned out to be really great.
Now, i am going to show you how I turned my imagination into my reality. So, let's get started.
Step 1: Gathering All the Components.
So guys, the first step is to gather all the components. The components I used are easily accessible and are relatively cheap so it won't endanger your pocket as well. The components required in this project are listed below:
1. A Hot Glue Gun ( a glue stick as well )
2. A wire stripper or paper cutter ( If you have a sharp one )
3. A match box ( of any brand )
4. Instant glue ( of any brand )
5. 10-20 popsicle sticks
6. 6-8 wooden skewers ( diameter- about 2 mm )
7. A big paint brush ( size 12)
8. Some paints ( burnt sepia, black and yellow ochre; regardless of the brands)
9. A ruler for measurement
10. A cutting mat ( not so necessary )
After you have gathered all the components, you can proceed to the next step!!
Step 2: Preparing the Basic Parts.
Now guys, you need to strip off the heads of the match sticks ( as shown in the first picture) to make them look more real. I used a wire stripper for this purpose.
You should strip off as many as you can so that you don't run out of them while making the project. If you have done all as mentioned, you can proceed to the next step!!
Step 3: Making the Structure (1)
Now guys, you need to place 4 match sticks in the shape given in the first picture. I used instant glue to fix the joints. then, as shown in second picture, we need to place 2 more stripped off match sticks over the earlier shape with instant glue. This shape will provide strength and will act as the back of the chair. After you have done so, you can proceed to the next step!!
Step 4: Making the Structure (2)
Now guys, you need to take 3 popsicle sticks and strip off their sides as shown in the first and second pictures.I used wire stripper for this purpose. then, as shown in the second picture, we need to glue a small piece of popsicle stick to the stripped off popsicle sticks which we made earlier. Then we need to glue this piece to the back of the chair which we made in the 3rd step.This will act as the seat of the chair. I used hot glue for this purpose.
Then, as shown in the fourth and fifth pictures, we need to stick pieces of stripped off match sticks to form the sides and arms of the chairs. This will make them look more real. After you have done so, you are eligible to proceed to the next step!!
Step 5: Making the Legs.
Now, we need to take the wooden skewers and cut 8 equal pieces of 3 cm length. After doing so, we need to glue 4 of these to each of the four corners of the chairs. I used hot glue for this purpose. This will act as the legs of the chairs and provide strength and stability. Your chairs are ready now.
Note that after gluing the legs to the chairs, the chairs stand perfectly and are stable on the floor or whatever surface you are placing them on. After doing so, you can proceed to the next step!!
Step 6: Making Of: the Table
Now, it's time to make the table to complete the whole set. For this, at first, we need to cut 4 pieces of 4 cm long wooden skewers. I used wire strippers for this purpose. Then, as shown in the third picture, we need to place 6-7 popsicle sticks in the shape of a table.Then, as shown in the fourth picture, we need to glue 3 small pieces of popsicle sticks over the table-shaped popsicle sticks.I used hot glue for this purpose. Then, as shown in the fifth and sixth pictures, we need to strip off the edges of the table to make it look more real. At last, we need to glue the 4 pieces of wooden skewers to all the 4 corners of the table using hot glue gun.Our table is now complete.
Note that after gluing the legs to the table, the table stands perfectly and is stable on the floor or whatever surface you are placing it on. After you have done so, you can proceed to the next and final step!!
Step 7: Painting, Finalizing and More!!!
Now, after building the whole set, we just can't leave without our final touch, so, we will start painting it. For this, I used a large paint brush of size 12 and some paints ( burnt sepia, black and yellow ochre; regardless of the brands). After doing so, your mini table and chair set is complete.
Finally, you should do an inspection whether all is correct and according to your choice or not. Then, you can just sit back, relax and enjoy your own creation.
