As soon as I saw colarific's post (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=149702.0) I knew I absolutely HAD to make one of my own!

And now, months after I started the darned thing (school has really been dampening my creative output these days!), here it is!



And here's a close-up of the tiling:



I am so glad that I've finally finished this... now I won't feel guilty while I'm working on other crafts! Cheesy It was sort of a pain to make, but I really like the finished result. Cutting the cans was easy once I got into a rhythm, and after the frame was assembled and painted it was really a matter of finding the time to nail them all on! I have to say, thank goodness for nail guns!

Thoughts become words, words become actions, actions become habits, habits become character, character becomes destiny, you become confused, just be nice.

So cool!  We made part of our kitchen backsplash out of soda cans, so I think I'll post a picture of it tomorrow.  All the cans come in such pretty colors.... Smiley Smiley Smiley  and I'm building up my stash of empty cans again, so I'm looking for additional ideas on what to do with them.
