We try not to do things the hard way. When we make a box, the initial stage is 1. First take a box.
Luckily for the storage boxes we need on Herbie’s shelves, wine bottle boxes have just the right footprint. All I have to do is cut them down to height and stiffen the sides with extra layers of cardboard. That’s when Kath steps in and works her magic.
She tears up pieces of previously painted or hand printed paper (all her own work) and sticks them on like this.
I suppose some people might find them a bit too lively, but I love ’em. She’s a clever old stick. Once the glue is dry they get a protective coat of transparent wax.
This time she even subtly incorporated a logo.
After re-measuring the shelves I hope they are the right size this time or I’m going to have to run for cover.
