This came about as a way to make these pieces look like regular wooden furniture. Basically, all you need is a ruler, a white crayon, watercolors, and your Smalltown Flats furniture of choice. Shown above is the Pair O’Chairs and Trestle Table.
Step 1 – Line the ruler up on the furniture piece you are decorating, and using the white crayon, draw a straight line on either side of the ruler. Make straight parallel lines on every piece. Draw little piney wood “knots” all over the pieces.
Step 2 – Using your watercolors (mixture of black and brown), paint the furniture, and see the knots “appear!”
Step 3 – Wait for the pieces to dry, then assemble.
