Got it made (insert happy dance here!) I wasn't very happy with it as I was building it. It wasn't turning out as beautiful as it was in my mind! In fact, I thought it was hideous and was ready to chuck it into the burn pile! But I figured it would do for the time being, until I could think of something else. I put pretty paper on the back and painted it. Looked a little better, still not great. However, after I put the oils on it, stood back and looked, yeah! This might be ok after all! It actually looks pretty darn good! I may just have to keep it!
