Josh’s restaurant wall art

These are some crafty pieces from Josh, a new hacker, who hacks items purchased from the As-is section. Josh is an artist in Wilmington, DE and the hacks below can be seen at Olé Tapas Lounge, located in Newark, DE.

He says, “I used these pieces to create an entire restaurant full of artwork. I think I might be on to something. This piece is from the Komplement multi-use hanger.

Drawer fronts recycled from Akurum drawers.

The bull face was recycled from a desktop (Vika Manne).

The canvases were painted over from Tulip paintings purchased on clearance at Ikea.

And the Ole’ panel was recycled from a remnant of a book shelf.

More of Josh’s artwork can be seen at here.

    Add four feet of 2×3 painted black, some white string and a scroll-sawed head and the Vika Manne desktop made into a bull face here could easily become a seven-foot violin. First thing I thought when I saw the shape.

    Very nice! I especially like the bull face made from the table top.

    Wow, I’ve been enjoying Ikea Hacker for about 6 months now, and suddenly there’s a hack from my hometown? The internet is a small place.

    Freaking brilliant. Very creative uses with that “oh, yeah, that totally is an IKEA drawer front!” surprise factor.
