I was very inspired by a few previous posts of potion cabinets. I didn't want one for myself, but it looked like a ton of fun, so I made one each for two of my very close, Harry Potter loving friends. Sadly, I was overwhelmed with crafting projects and finishing my thesis to graduate, and classes, so I didn't get to finish all of the bottles or try out the wood burning like I wanted to, but the girls now have a few empty bottles to decorate as they want.... now for excessive pictures
A free-standing cabinet from a converted jewelry storage:
One of the pulls on the doors was missing, so I replaced it with some pretty yellow to bronze colored beads on a drop pen the same length as the original pull.
I pulled out some horrifying and filthy yellow velvety fabric and replaced it with some pretty paper on the inside...
Along with the little bottles, I included a polymer clay mandrake that I sculpted...
I also put random things in the drawers... not pictured was a drawer with spare labels, and a drawer with a skeleton key and an old leather bound book of poems.
The second cabinet was an old hanging spice cabinet: (thanks to my roommate who held it up for photos
(Another clay mandrake)...
The second cabinet had a wearable Luna necklace since the friend receiving it is much more likely to actually wear it
