These are reverse glass paintings with a 2 sided mirror behind them.  If you look close the 3rd picture has a chunk of bark on the front.  The bottom has a chopped frame around it.  The crown is to chair arms with a wooden egg in the middle.
Thes fence boards were from a fence that was over 100 years old cedar.  I used the 2 with the knot holes out of them so she could stick the stuffed animal skunks heads out of. 
This is my favorite side
My joke is that its they 3 colors of skunk.  Black, white and red on the inside.  The mirrors are double sided. So the painting looks like its on the mirror
I made small shelves for the small skunks. Since skunks like bugs and eggs. I put 5 lady bugs around the inside

My Daughter is a collector of skunks. I painted these reverse glass paintings in 2011 and have tried to come up with a great cabinet. My friend gave me some old 1 x 12 fence boards that was so weather worn.  I resurfaced them for another project soon to come.  I can't wait to deliver.  She will be surprised I'm sure.  I had a blast eavery year trying to figure this out.
