A work situation (several work situations actually) ended up with me coming home with a number of things from the office, including two wooden shelves.
I have always wanted to try decorative painting on wood, so that was my chance. After lots of acrylic and varnish, here are the results.
The first one, I was aiming for a moroccan tile look, but it somehow ended up looking a bit like a batik pattern (sigh)
Note: Batik is a special fabric dyeing technique from Indonesia. you can see samples and learn more about that here.
I decorated the second one below with the classic Japanese wave picture plus some cherry blossoms.
What do you think?
By the way, the first shelf has been sold but the second one is still available for 12 AUS$. If you are interested and you live in Melbourne, do get in touch! You can leave a comment, use the contact form, or contact me via Instagram: @dinainds
