Tea house designed for storing teasachets. But besides that, it is still a fine kitchen decor, and children often take it to their room. Tea houses are different: single, double, simple, voluminous. Let's start with a simple one. For this we need:
- plywood billets for the tea house. Earlier I ordered them in online stores, and now they are sold in any store for needlework;
- napkins for decoupage;
- PVA glue;
- brush, preferably semi-rigid;
- Fine sandpaper;
- acrylic paints;
- varnish for craquelure.
Let's start with sandblast processing. Then cover them with a primer. I always use white acrylic paint instead of a primer. Leave everything to dry. If the desire to speed up the process does not give rest, then you can use the help of a hair dryer. Then once again we work the surface with sandpaper. On the outer walls of the house we apply PVA glue. After it has dried, we put on"Glued" wall fragments of the napkin. Attention: with the napkins, first remove the two lower layers! Then, iron everything with a hot iron through gauze (paper, the bottom layer of a napkin, etc.). I like this method of decoupage, because the subsequent process of applying varnish or glue, greatly simplifies the work. So, the napkin is glued. Now we cut off all surpluses and cover all with gluePVA or acrylic lacquer. PVA looks no worse than lacquer, and besides that, it's also more budget-friendly. We let the glue dry, then cover it again, and repeat this process two more times. If the surface is rough, you can safely walk on it with sandpaper, and then apply a final layer of glue. Everything, the outer walls of the tea house are ready. Now we select acrylic paint under the color palette of the napkin. Cover it with all other surfaces and proceed to the roof. Well, I really like the effect of "aging". Therefore, we leave the outer color of the roof yellow and paint it with varnish for craquelure. We apply it in one direction and in one layer. After 2 hours, we apply a second coat of paint that is suitable for color. After drying, our roof is obtained with cracks. Now we will put glue on all the places of joining and collect all the parts of the roof. From above all we cover with a layer of PVA. The inner side of the tea house is nothing morewe cover. There will be tea bags in the future, so the less chemistry, the better. Enough and acrylic paint. Now we will collect all the remaining parts of the house, applying glue to all places of joining. For a better result, fix the house with a rope. After a couple of hours, everything is ready. Just put the roof in place and admire. Beauty!
