I got a great deal on ebay on some old Tootsie Toy furniture, some of which is broken (hence the great deal).
The chairs all sit higher than my other half scale miniatures. I thought I could just cut a bit off the bottom of the legs, but the metal is very brittle, and I ended up snapping the legs of the first chair I tried it on into pieces. I also broke a little piece of the seat off.
I used a piece of one of the legs I snapped off to repair the other broken legged chair, then sanded the legless base down to accept newly built wooden legs.
I also made the table...I used pins and glue to put legs cut from some 1/12 scale railing I'm never going to use onto a wooden circle. The top of the table is darker than I wanted, it really soaked up the stain...but it's not so dark that I can't live with it.
While I was waiting for glue to dry I cut and stained pieces to make a chair for the living room. Provided I've planned and measured correctly these bits of wood will look like a piece of furniture tomorrow.
