"&" Marquee Lights



A month ago, I posted a tutorial that screams my obsession with lights and spring. Have you seen it? If not, go learn how to create a floral marquee light because it's a similar tutorial to this topic.


I was inspired to make my own classic marquee light after window shopping online for new things to haul for my home. I stumbled upon this vintage ampersand that was insanely pricey for an accent piece. I was like, "Heck no! I can make this!"





I love how my version came out with gold and white stripes that gave my office a pop of character.




Watch my tutorial:

  3. The engine handbag replica occupies a piece of the couple’s garage.If Kozura can’t find a part, he machines it himself, Replica handbags then uses an industrial brake to bend it into submission.No armchair mechanic, Kozura is specially Replica watches UK licensed to work on any part of an aircraft’s frame or Replica Watches engine, which also makes him uniquely qualified to work for the FAA.It’s not unlikely for him to arrive home Rolex Daytona from his FAA job, then spend .
