wow - wow - wow !!  I love how you really personalized it.

I too have drooled over Sticks for quite some time. In fact, I bought a plain mega-mart armoire for my fabric with the intention of "Sticks-i-fying" it - but have been WAY too intimidated to start. I have both dremel and a woodburning tool and wasn't sure which to use.  And never got past that.

Thank you so much for the tutorial!  It really does make it seem a little less intimidating.  And gives me the idea to start with something a little smaller first.   

Can't wait to see your door!

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

Thanks everyone! Glad you liked it! Smiley

KarenLouise - I know exactly where you are - I didn't know whether a dremel or woodburning would be better, either. And so I kept putting off the project. I kept going back to the store and looking at the Sticks furniture trying to figure it out. I'm glad I went with the dremel. It took me a little while to experiment with dremel bits and how to hold the dremel so it wouldn't go all crazy out of control. It turned out that the cutting guide attachment/ball-end cutting bit made it tons easier - it actually went very fast once I got it all figured out, almost as fast as I could draw it.

Once I finally decided to start working on this thing, it actually only took me a week from carving to finishing. The style is so loose, that it all goes very quickly. Plus the acrylic paint dries super-fast, so you need to keep moving! lol!

So I hope to see some more projects like this one on craftster soon! Wink

Wow! This is utterly incredible! You must be so proud! I've seen things painted in this style before and I'm not sure if it was from "Sticks" or if it was just inspired by them, but I've always loved it! Thanks for the great directions on how you did this. I think I'll try something on a small scale first.
But yours is amazing.
