And here it is from further back, the further the better.
I think it is a happy addition to our mantle. My cousin also made one of these. It was originally her idea to make them, after she saw a similar one at HomeGoods for around $300! Here's hers. I love the pop of yellow. (Hard to see in this iPhone pic, but looks great in person.)
Some other projects included painting and staining two coffee tables and a wine cork board. I'll try to get some of those pictures up soon. I love successful Saturday's!
