Wow! This looked Great! Will you come to my house next Christmas to decorate???
I really like your instructable!!! I am going to do this next year for the holidays. I think that it is awesome that you used all Craftsman tools to do the project. Others that I have seen on here are not even using Craftsman tools. You should get extra points for using their tools for the contest. Good luck!!
DITTO! Nice set of Craftsman tools dude!
This looks beautiful!!
This was a gift to my Mom. She wanted something festive in her entryway that looked nice for the Holidays and when her Bridge group came over. She said everyone loved it! Thanks Mom! 1/5/09
