I spotted this trompe l'oeil sign in Brooklyn, which appeared to be a chalkboard sign hanging outside a shop till I got closer to it. The way the sign's painted gives it the illusion of three dimensions.

Trompe l'oeil is French for "deceive the eye," and there are some super fun examples of home decor that create this optical illusion using realistic imagery. Here are a few favorites.
