Well, if anything this project reminded me of a few facts I had obviously forgotten! 1. Don't forget to take "before" pictures. I get so excited to get started on a new idea that I totally forget. 2. If glass is involved, take pics before the final assembly. I am not a good photographer. I am totally not good enough to take photos through glass (or the cheap plastic equivalent)! That being said, here are some pics of one of my latest projects.
This is one of my favorite creations. Even my husband looked at it and said "That isn't for a swap is it? You're going to keep that one, right?" Since he never notices what I'm working on, this is a huge compliment - so we are definitely keeping it
Since I don't have a before pic, here's an idea of what I was working with - very similar to these, except someone had gone the extra mile and painted the wood a nice institutional green color, slopping the edges of the plastic domes as well:
In the finished project, there are two bookshelves, each containing a background paper (Graphic 45 Rare Oddities) that looks like apothecary type items and then actual items, like a shrunken zombie in a dome, the skeleton, a bat, etc. Hard to see them through the glare. The bird across the top is a piece off an old cuckoo clock.
