The newness has not worn off, I am still amazed that when someone comes to purchase one of my pieces they actually do. I still expect them to say oh.. it's not what I was looking for. So far this has not happend! I have some awesome 100+ year old shutters I'm refinishing for wall art. I'll take suggestions if anyone is looking for someting to hang over their mantel, over a bed, over a dooway... any special sayings you would like it say? Just message me.
