This project kind of sums up what Craftster means to me in two ways. The first is the way that upcycling was a very new idea to me until I found y'all. If you can't tell,  the rays are piano keys that I found at an antique mall.

Here it is by itself, hopefully at enough of an angle where the cable outlet that I haven't had a chance to camouflage yet is mostly hidden.

It is quite large 38 inches across with a 16 inch mirror.

The second reason is that Craftster is a place to craft about what you are into. (I don't know how many times I've responded to my hubby talking about something new and trendy that, "I knew about that, someone's crafted about it")
Our living room is very much about what we are into. I like to think of it as a salon, not in a stuffy way, but as a place for music and theatre and books and art and hosting friends who enjoy it with us. I love it. I think it makes a great focus both for looks and for ideas.
Thanks for looking.
