Reusing wood to make a whimsical art screen


These panels are cut from old IKEA shelving. I used photos of Amsterdam homes, drew them directly onto the gessoed wood, then painted each one. Hinges from a hardware store were used to attach them together. It made a unique gift at a cost of time only and a few hinges. My friends love it.
Screens of this type can be used across the front of unused fireplaces, placed in a window or set on the floor as decorative art.

This is so cute. I found my way here via your comment on TCA. I'll definitely be back to see more of your creations!
