4 comments

However it's not really my thing to mount art on my wall, as I'm more someone in need of functional art. So I decided to create something to mimic it's look.

Metal and wood. These are a few of my favorite things! I'm always on the look out for new ways to repurpose these old bins. I thought of a few and when the idea was laid out, it appeared as though this design could use them in each manner!
