Picture of Rustic Lamp from Scratch
My Grandmother was very enterprising....it seemed there was almost nothing she couldn't do...she cooked, sewed,  ran a funiture shop, could guide construction workers in exactly how to build houses (one of her son's have got this talent)  had the talent to do flower arrangements for brides...made bridal thrown ....you name it... weddings in the family were always DIY projects...practically everything was made from scratch (my wedding too!) Her numerous talents spread amongst her children.....though non got all of it...almost everyone got one of her talent.
My mom got her talent for Dressmaking (she also does quite a bit of house repairs )and I as her grand daughter seem to have suddenly developed a fascination for wood working. My children of course are thrilled about it ...for now they could tell me what they want to be built. This mom maker contest is i feel made for me and many other mom's who are totally into crafts....so thank you instructables and dremel for putting up this contest!
I have always been a gonner for the rustic look...and when i saw this
I wanted to try it...I also had a thing for colored wood...hence
my rustic lamp was born :-D
