With a few layers of varnish I think these small pieces will be decent. It is possible to adjust some after each layer of varnish. The varnish adds some softness and a little bit of “antique” look.
Yesterday we submitted our application for permission to build a new house next to Villa Holsby. We have spent over a year to work on ideas and plans for the new house. We have worked with three different architect firms and a fourth architect has functioned as a filter and speaking partner. Our ambition is very high: the house must last a minimum of 100 years and has to harmonize with the existing Villa Holsby. If all goes well, we plan to start construction after Easter 2012.
