I had such fun in the Curiosity Cabinet Swap, and was amazed by the creations. See https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=437697.0

I needed a cabinet to display my curious and creepy objects. I knew I had a small display shelf stashed away in the basement and managed to unearth it. It was not inspiring. Sigh.

So several layers of paint, lots of glue, some soul satisfying distressing, here you go.



Original shelf. Next is the addition of objects and texture and a coat of black paint.



Then several coats of white and off-white and lots of shellac which gave it a nice aged look.

Oh wow, that is pretty wonderful. I really appreciate that you've included various display surfaces including storage on top and hanging options all around. I am inspired. Wink

Very nice transformation!  I love the pre-paint additions, especially the little picture frame at the top!

A display case made for the all of the wonderful curiosities...I love how some are hanging off the bottom and sides!

Thank you, I knew I needed hanging space. So I raided the house top to bottom to find items. I've found several curiosities to add hidden behind other overcrowded shelves.

Wow! I saw the second pic and thought, 'wait, she has TWO shelves?' Then I realized it was an in-progress pic. It is wonderful!

So nice! What a wonderful way to display your curiosities! I especially love that you added knobs and hooks for hanging things!
