here’s a double bonus from francine reculez of milano, italy. one of them even won a prize in an “ikea decorated items” contest.

francine adds, “the first is a piece using the ivar storage system, added with a couple of home-made cabinet doors and decorated with sides from vegetable & fruit wooden cases. of course, it stands in my kitchen.”

mobile cucina ikea“the second piece is a wooden cabinet from a few years ago, no longer in the ikea production line. i simply painted them with acrylic paint (bronze, light gold, dark gold and silver) and pasted on ikea wooden leaves. i also wrote some lines of poetry.”

    how anyone can see a svastika in that design definitely surpasses my imagination. you’d have to neglect half the pattern?? nothing in the colouring scheme hints at that some parts of the pattern are more “relevant” than others?!

    ….. absolute lack of understanding for this posting.
