They're not exactly going to hold anything heavy, but they're the perfect whimsical display shelves for my studio! I love displaying paintings that I'm selling- that way, I can enjoy them a bit before they get new homes. I painted mine glossy black to help me find a place to use them.
A bonus for this project is not only finding but getting the mushrooms. Friends & I got to watch as Jesse attempted scaling trees in the woods to capture the elusive specimens! You'll also be treated to a whole array of funny looks when you tell people why you want them (and who knows- after seeing the final product, they might still give you same looks!).
You can bet I'll be keeping my eye open for more 'shrooms to use in the future. Next time, I'll try a fun, bright color (instead of safe, simple black) now that I'm satisfied with the general outcome!! :)
PS- You can also see that the Boo got some new fabric for his studio cage as a 'surgery present!'
