    WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!! :) I have been doing small DIY projects around the house and am always looking to do more as it’s the little details that make a huge difference. I always have things lying around or extra material from previous projects and I get stumpped trying to find things to do with them. You have provided me with so many ideas and inspired me to do so many more things. You are amazing. Great work and thank you for your ideas and inspiration.

    Ive got ALOT of the wood iron on veneer left from making the woven wood sconces. What could I use the extra veneer for? Any suggestions? The sconces turned out very well, once I got the hang of doing it all. Thank you for your time and great ideas. Marc

      Would love to see pics of your lamps! I do have a few ideas involving edging but haven’t had the time to finish any of them yet. I will make sure to share the projects here so you can take a look. You’re welcome Marc!
