Hi,
the "Laurel & Hardy"- motif I got from a calendar and it was one my first attempts, so  there are some mistakes like using polyurethane varnish and too thick glue, which caused some irregularities - but I still like it.
For the second I used an Ikea hanging kitchen cabinet, which was the only thing matching in size that I could find. The "Big Ben"- motif is from Sparkling wine "Mumm". For some time they put their bottles in cardboard boxes showing diverse landmarks and this was the European edition, which I coincidentally found as a poster (even has silver print on it, which can't be seen on the photo).
Hope you like it.

These are amazing! I love them beyond words! You did an incredible job and I'm truly impressed. Approx. what size are the pieces of furniture and how did you get the art work large enough?

Thanks!

 @Anam
Thank you for the comments.
The Big-Ben-cabinet is about 92 x 30cm and the Laurel&Hardy-cabinet is about 90 x 70cm.
The problem was not to get the motifs large enough, they are both original size, but to find furniture that matched the size of the motifs, leading to the somewhat strange use of an Ikea kitchen cabinet supposed to be hung to the wall.
I hope this helps.

That's awesome! Although I still don't understand how you got your pictures so big? Where did you find them and get them printed at?! This is really cool!  Shocked

@smoker
I bought them this size and I didn't enlarge them. If you look at the third picture you can see on the table the cardboard box of the Sparkling wine, which I had first and then found coincidentally the poster on (German) ebay. Laurel& Hardy are from a calendar (also german).

I love them. They look great.
