Caption reads: The transformation of a sturdy old-fashioned armoire into a whimsical storage cabinet demonstrates that fun and profit can be derived from trompe l'oeil. The fun aries from the novelty of finding a larger-than-life contrary Mary watering her garden on the outside of a serious piece of furniture. The profit stems from the modest cost of the finished product: less than $60 for the armoire, wallpaper, pasting kit, spray plastic, water putter, and white paint.
"Mary, Mary" is one of a line of wallpaper murals. The black line drawing on a white backgroun transforms the solemn old armoire into a gay and lively piece of contemporary furniture.
