Here is my most recent trash to treasure. It is a shelf that I made out of the sides and back of an old kitchen drawer. The bottles on top are actually scraps of a wallpaper border cut out and stuck on the wall at the back of the shelf the basket is real as are the old jelly jars. I have since added a pewter plate behind the basket and some faux grapes in the foreground.

Penny, this is a great idea! I always envy the folks who can do trompe l'oeil painting. Never thought about using wall paper for my 'trom-play' but yours is wonderful!

Hey jodifay!

From one Louisiana girl to another, I found the border print at Home Depot and cut out the pieces that I wanted to use. I beieve that it is still available.

Charinky and Jodifay, don't know if you are into decorative painting or not, but the August 2006 issue of Painting magazine had lots of wine bottles, grapes, etc. in case you want to check it out for ideas.
