Ok! So, I've mentioned that when the sign-ups for this swap were underway that I realized I had the perfect display piece for Tiny Houses. Potentially
perfect, that is. I got this at the Goodwill bins a few years ago with the intention of refinishing it. It still had the Marshall's tag on it (I paid 1/4 of that price) and it's no wonder, because it was really ugly.
Exhibit A (after sanding it, but you get the idea):
Color is more accurate in the other shots, this was taken inside after dark under halogen lights)
And as a WIP with each cubbyhole having a different "landscape" and the sides collages of various and sundry trees:
Ultimately I'd like no red showing, including on the bottom as it hangs on the wall and might be visible. I plan to do some architectural images on the front or maybe curtain-like images, too. Not quite sure about the top and bottom of the cabinet yet, but plan on painting the top and bottom of each cubby, either in colors similar to the images within or a dark neutral like black or dark brown.
Some close-ups of some of the cubbyholes:
I don't think that I'll necessarily match the tiny houses to their backgrounds as I get them, so I'd like to have lunar or mars background in there, too! Also a forest and jungle, perhaps some of those houses on stilts in the river... you can see what I'm getting at. The rub is that I want them in color and they have to be about 9" wide and about 2 5/8" tall (taller for the top row).
