There's been some chatter about Todd Oldham's book, handmade modern, on craftster. The vases where in both the book and last month's readymade, so they're not an original, but they turned out well so I thought I would post them.Wood-grain Contact Paper Vase
my dh works as the handyman for a trendy furniture place in Miami Beach and got to hang out with Todd Oldham and get our book signed a few weeks ago. I was so jealous! I'm going to make the decopage foot stools one of these days.
I also used a metallic contact paper on this one. I think it goes well with the mid-century theme . . .
Veneer Spot Vase
Veneer is kind of expensive, so I kept the design sparse. (The original from the book was covered in veneer "pebbles", but I think different patterns would be just as striking and use fewer materials.
