Finally finished. I started this set when my boss was six months pregnant with her first child. Lou Lou turns 2 soon so I thought I better hurry up and finish them. They turned out pretty well, but one chair is not as good as I would have liked. I had cut out most of the parts when I was not feeling well and obviously should not have been in the shop. But by the pictures I think she doesn’t mind the little boo boos.

Thanks for looking.

Now that’s one happy little girl, Betsy! I’m sure you will always have a special spot in her heart for making these.

I think they look great. Especially like the design of the matching table.

Betsy you did a great job. Lou Lou looks cool with her sunglasses and she looks like she is on vacation.
Great JOB..

This set looks great, I wish I had made that for my daughter when she was younger, but at the time I had no room where I was. Beautiful.

Great job, Betsy, I don’t see any boo-boos! Children love things like that, makes them feel grown up, she will get a lot of use out of those chairs and table.
