Who says art can't be practical? These projects feature art that serves a specific purpose, or art that decorates your house.
Painted Wooden Trays. I hand-painted these ducks to create a unique set of wood trays.
Coat Hooks. This is how Bauhaus-type people keep their coats off the floor. The shelf and the storage unit on the floor are both from Ikea.
Loft bed with shelves. One supporting end of the loft bed is a shelving unit. There is even a secret compartment at the top accessible from the upper bunk. On the backside of the shelves, I painted chalkboard paint to create a large-size chalkboard. The lower bed and frame are from Ikea.
Wall and ceiling sculpture. Both designs use geometric forms, and project out from the surface, creating interesting shadows. Ceiling are often overlooked as a place for artwork! The lights and ceiling fans are by others.
CD Boxes. These multi-hued boxes are made using light-color wood stain, so you can still see the beautiful wood grain. They can be used to store your CD collection as well as for displaying kick-knacks and photos.
