Apothecary Wall Display Wall Art Home Decor - Handmade
Handmade apothecary wall display shelves.
Size: W40cm x D12cm x H32cm each.
I made this apothecary wall display using pallet wood for the shelves and some vintage bottles and labels for the display items.
After I cut the timber to size I put the shelves together using glue and screws, which I covered with wooden nails. I then gave the cabinet a coat of dark brown stain and several coats of bees wax to protect it.
The larger bottles are real vintage bottles, which I further distressed using special paint. I also added some jute string to give them a more rustic look. I followed the same distressing procedure for the other bottles and then added original vintage apothecary labels, which I distressed. The small jar contains 7 potion recipes rolled up and distressed.
The book is not a real book but I printed the cover and created a small box to give a realistic appearance and then distressed it. The parcels as well are boxes wrapped in paper with original vintage labels and jute string.
The back of the box features several vintage apothecary labels and advertising.
The cabinet has 2 small hooks at the back for wall hanging.
I think this small display is very effective and realistic and would undoubtedly give a touch of originality to any room.
