    Omg! Totally fab! I wish I had your talent & tools! I am thoroughly impressed & can’t wait to see your next project. I’m so inspired & I’m going to make a metal table out of 2 popcorn tins & a round metal serving tray. It was inspired from when I went to Paris & I needed a small table to compliment my 2 wrought iron Parisian looking outdoor chairs in which to serve wine & cheese on. I hope it works as I’m envisioning it.

      Thank you for your lovely comments. Re purposing something to something altogether different is so satisfying. You can check more on my YouTube channel. I am adding my projects slowly there. (I take good amount of time to edit the videos).

      I would love to see your table, when it's done.
