I finally got a driftwood project done...well...sort of......
I thought I would share it with you today.
I went to my local thrift and found a large frame. I actually purchased 2 frames. The larger one was $4.98, the smaller $1.98, which I will use for another driftwood project.
I laid all of the driftwood out on my outdoor table and began to organize it as best I could by lenght and size of driftwood. I also had a special section for driftwood that just stood out....I might've liked the holes in the wood or the bend in a stick, etc. Those were my "artsy fartsy show pieces".Then I began to piece the driftwood around frame, not gluing. I wanted to fit it together, to see what piece worked better where. And I am glad I did. It took me three times to get what I wanted. It was much like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. THEN I got out my hot glue gun and began glueing the pieces together, just as they were.
I am having a mirror cut to fit the inside.
It wasn't ready.
But I am also an impatient person and well..wanted to share...Although the mirror is still missing the frame itself came together.

wouldn't believe how light it is! I really think having the mirror in there will make all the difference!
When I am done "for real", when the mirror is added I will share that with you too.
