"MY ISLAND"

 Finally I'm back again bringing you another "FREE" project that I constructed with my own two hands:)
Id like to thank my very cool friend Holly for much encouragement and inspiration and for "jump starting" my creativeness.So without further adoooooo... Here's my Homemade island start to finish.....
Well there she is ! The last thing to be done is to put my one inch thick piece of plexi-glass on the top and its a done deal. I will post again as soon as I finish up the plexi-glass topper hope you like it as much as I do as it was my labor of love.Here is the link to see the plexi-glass top I put on the Island.
