This little cabinet was done primarily as an experiment. I have been thinking for some time about combining some of my paintings with wood projects. I want the wood work to be the primary aspect of the whole and add interest with the painting. Being an Arts and Crafts style I wanted the painting to have an “oldish” flavour to it. The over all height is about 20”, and the painting is 6 by 8”. Thanks alot for looking…......... ;-j

That is just plain cool. I love the simplistic look of it. The painting, oil or acrylic?

Looks nice. Not knocking it, but A&C uses tile for the same effect. Yours may not be any less expensive, given the cost of materials.
