Finnby Console Redux

This idea came from an old Katie Brown segment on the Style Network (click to watch youtube upload) I saw five or six years ago. She had a vintage bread ad copied into a large piece of vinyl at Kinkos and then used spray adhesive to mount it to the front of a cabinet.


I went the el cheapo route and used to make the large image, cut and taped each piece together, laminated the paper to fuse it, cut it to size and then taped it to the IKEA console.


I waited until the poster was mounted before I cut the vertical lines for each door. Although the seams are a little more obvious now, initially they weren't.
