Another fun project

Just wanted to post a few pictures of a book page wreath I finished recently. In case you're interested, this is where I found the tutorial.

Say what?

I still can't believe it myself, but I actually started and finished a DIY project in the SAME DAY! Maybe that's not a big deal for some of you, but it is for me. I would be too embarrassed to tell you how many different projects I have that are half way done. Some of them sit for months...maybe a year before they get finished or finally thrown out.
Anyway, here is my creation. I'm not a huge fan of natural wood and my knife block has always kind of bugged me, so I found a solution for the problem on this blog, and felt like I needed to copy it.

What do you think? Better? I think so.
(Except now my knives look old and faded.)

Here is what I used: 2 flat black coats and 1 light misting of the oil rubbed bronze color.
(Plus wood filler for the stamp on the front.)
