VERY YELLOWED AND SCRATCHED UP.

  8. Adorable, does that have a shadow box too, or just glass on top.

    Those legs look pretty, is the table sturdy? I like that idea a lot, and I bet you could make something like this pretty easy, ( I think )

    My last request, I promise, please link up (whenever girl, even next week, or the week after) You can always share your older projects, with me, or any party.

    I am SOOO happy you found me, did I already say THANK YOU, I mean it, THANK YOU!!!
