It's taken me longer than I wanted with this one. I got it built pretty quick but I didn't know what paint job to give it. I ended up going with browns, they are my safety colors :).
Can't really tell in the photos but the trim is all a lighter brown.
Imagine the decorations you can place on the shelves!
Celtic design is a favorite of my customer so I incorporated some here.
This one I had in my minds eye for a while.
I wanted an open design, almost defying gravity. Very whimsical.
The crystal ball was a must, so I had to make the part that holds the book so that it wouldn't detract from the view below.
And I wanted a magical, stardust look to it.
Although every time I look at it I also get a circus feel :), maybe it's the colors.
And of course many candles. More tapered candles and some votives too.
Now it's off to wand boxes for the wands you saw earlier, then off to books. It's about 9pm here right now and I never got to making bone scrolls for Etsy like I wanted to, that book stand stalled me for a day. I'll see if I can squeeze some in tonight or tomorrow.
