|Inspiration for the cabinet|
I still have a few more things I had planned to add to the house so I tackled the the space in the buddha room that I wanted to fill. I had looked at so many cabinets (some quite beautiful had they been the right scale) and I just couldn’t find anything adaptable. But while navigating some photos, I came across this one.
Realistically it is a very small cabinet but I liked the idea of the decoupaged calligraphy and the aging. So, I gathered all kinds of left over wood
I measured out the size and found some of the printed off materials I had from the very beginning of the project. The front drawers would be covered with scenes from an onsen and I liked the black and red motif. So I used double sided tape and 1/4” masking tape to put the panels together to create the cabinet and drawers. I just used the wooden cleats as handles and aged the entire cabinet using my usual old eye shadow colors.
