Thanks for adding me as your friend!;P

Bedford - just south of Bloomington

I'm glad you did it - that's an encouraging boost for me!!
stay well.

erin - where are you from - i'm a small So. Ind. fish too!


Did you guys ever finish your garage project?


 Once again you've been Brilliant!  How to Create a Custom Mosaic Armoire what a great idea! Your thoughts and designs just make me sooo happy. Thanks I appreciate you.

The steel was about $7 a sheet 24 x 36 ". I used tinsnips to cut it to size and the filing took about 15 min. per piece b/c I wanted it perfect (no nicks and cuts for my houseguests!) I would say that once you had the measurements & the materials you could get the project done in an afternoon. Maybe two if you have a bunch of doors. The project cost me about $30! So cheap! I will try to post a close up of the bolts and the backside of the doors soon....


Thanks for putting my project on your blog. Sometimes  restrictions force us to come up with an amazing solution, and this was one of those times!  Love your ideas and your sense of color- great work!

 Thanks for the offer of friendship, it's my pleasure!
Thanks for the add! Have a great day!
thanx for the add!
