Alcove/niche

This was a double cinder block chimney running up through a second story bedroom. I painted it to look like old limestone blocks with a niche in the center. The interior niche space is temporarily empty until we decide what to put there…..ideas??

Lime stone shelves

Lime stone shelves

On the other side of the block chimney are fake shelves painted to look like carved limestone. (These are painted on the cinder block chimney as described in previous post). Old bookbindings were cut and glued to the wall surface to looklike they are sitting on the shelves. An old print of an Italian street scene was also glued to the wall and I painted a gold leaf frame around it. The baseboard was also painted to look like old limestone.
