Illustrated Cabinets

Steps

  1. Step 1

    gt042_illuscabin2.jpg

    Photocopy images onto colored paper, enlarging or reducing as you like; a proportion wheel helps you calculate the percentage, or you can improvise -- a patchwork effect is part of the charm.

  2. Step 2

    The flower image is actually made from six pieces of paper in various shades of blue, not quite aligning.

  3. Step 3

    This cabinet has pull-out shelving. Cut paper to fit your cabinet.

  4. Step 4

    Brush on wallpaper paste with a foam brush. Apply paper, one at a time, and smooth with a wooden roller.

    Old medicine cabinets can be found at junk stores and flea markets - I made one of these for my daughter and she kept her American Girl doll small accessories ( the ones I kept almost vacuuming away!) in it for years. Now it's converted to a jewelry cabinet. Parhelian

    Poetgoddess, this cabinet was bought many years ago from Historical Materialism. They may not have the same one in stock, but you might be able to find something similar. http://www.historicalmaterialism.com/ - Tiffany Sun, Online Holidays and Crafts Editor

    I realize the point here is to line the inside of the cabinet and I really like the idea but I love the style of the cabinet displayed! Where would one find such a beautiful cabinet? We are redoing our bath and this would be perfect!!
