Prints can go anywhere!

I have been experimenting with printing on material and wood. Happiest with the prints on wood and I am using these to decorate some old drawers and turning them into wall shelves or shadow boxes. Excited by the finished product.  Lots of room for experimentation, but requires some serious sanding of the drawers first.
I am going to put a couple of these printed shelves into the 2013 Christmas Bazaar held in the Auditorium at Mt Cootha Botanic Gardens here in Brisbane during late November. Will see what response I get from shoppers.
Here are a few examples.

I have also made a coffee table including prints on these shelves, for my daughter, gradually using up the numerous drawers we have after renovations.  Looking forward to hearing how it works at her place, ie she doesn’t knock her shins too much on the handles. I will have to modify design if this is the case.
