Halloween Folk Art Cupboard with Grain Painting and Spooky Landscapes


Here is one of my latest offerings --- currently listed on ebay


It is a small 2 door cupboards that is perfect for holding part of your Halloween collection. The sides and top have been painted with my signature black on orange spooky landscapes. The inside has also been painted so you can use the cupboard open or closed. I have these cupboards custom made exclusively for me by an Amish craftsman and then I do all the painting. They are designed to ship undersize through UPS and save you money!

The vintage style Halloween artwork is completely original and done freehand with no stencils or paint pens - just me and my little brush! I have used vinegar painting to decorate the edges and corners of the cupboard. Vinegar painting is an early Folk Art technique that uses vinegar and pigment to achieve the look of exotic wood grains. It is somewhat of a lost art, but it has found its way to Moonhallow and it will be staying a while. So many scary little faces for you to find in the grain... too many to count!! Here is a close up of the grain painting...

Happy Haunting,
