Chiavari Gold Chair

If you have seen my previous post about the Mattel exhibit during the Barbie Convention, there were these miniature gold Chiavari chairs that my friends and I went crazy for. We fell so in love with it that we thought we should make our own. :)




The Chiavari chair in the Mattel sets were molded and casted. Something I've always wanted to do, but haven't had the budget to do so. My past attempt failed miserably bringing $40 worth of materials down the drain. My pocket is just not ready to try it again when I haven't figured out how to do it properly. So  I decided to just make the chair out of wood as usual. The turnings I got were perfect to create the other type of Chiavari chair design. I used the design that is commonly used now in weddings and special events. Mine came out looking more ornate than the real one because of the turnings I used, but I still love how it turned out.

Here are my pictures




Mattel's chair was smaller than 1:6 scale, but I tried to make mine as 1:6 as possible. I say as "possible", because if I made it a perfect 1:6 it looks too big for the doll.

  1. It's perfect! I love it! I find yours more attractive than the originals; I'd rather have one of yours. Still saving up for my Momoko...Maybe I can find a 'used' one that is cheaper.. They are so pretty and I'm dying to make larger food (1:6), as I'll be able to add so much more detail. Looking forward to your next post...Hugs!

  5. Chair design is stylish yet comfortable, featuring rich visual enhancement with a cut out center and alternating parquet veneer pattern . The rich brown mocha finish steps up the look with abundant eye appeal.chaise dsw
