Steampunking Ikea Cabinets

Speaking of modding Ikea cabinets, here's a set of Ivar cabinet doors that Rafael Fabre modded for his office.

The "raw" Ikea "Ivar" doors - unsanded, unstained, and uncoated

Ikea "Ivar" doors that are sanded (twice), stained (twice), coated (twice), projected placement of wood designes (blue/black base [salvaged from another project], and highlighted with a copper paint pen]). Also, the two squares above and below the "center square" on the door are actually from earrings from a 2nd hand store going out of business (50 cents per pair of earrings!)

The wood grain really comes through nicely.

Wow. I'm really impressed with this work!

Sorry for the late response, Miss Rachel, but I do hope to be done with this particular project in the near future - always the nagging details (80/20 rule, I believe)! But, ty, madam!

the wood finish in a house is like art work, in my case I like to put some Generic Viagra wood in my house, but this type of works are a little bit expensive.
