The Mantastic Guest Blogger

It's occurred to me that this blog’s url says “Davis Family Adventures” and one side has been blowing up the creative world w/ all kinds of wonderful things made of thread and fabric…while the other (me) has been at mandatory work appointments for the last four straight months. So, I’m living up to my side of the “Fam” and posting one of the projects I’ve finally finished up…one that has carried over from a project started in Germany. I’ve decided to depart from the feminine fabric and decided to talk about more manly things – namely wood...dark old barn wood. What could be more manerific?

We found this riddling rack (wine rack) literally the week before we packed up for Korea. Once we had it apart, Karen and I bought some baby food (yes I tasted them...I was not impressed) jars from the commissary, emptied them out and wrapped soldering wire around them and attached them to the rack. I’m pretty happy how it turned out - at least it’s a nice eye catcher when you open up the front door.

What do you think?

Pin It!

  8. Very mantastic but oh so beautiful! Great work, Jason! I love reading Karen's blogs but it's nice to get the "other side of the fam's" opinion, too. Keep on creating, Mr. Davis, and continue to share - don't let the creative juices go to waste. :)

  9. Love it!! Our riddling racks are just taking up space. We're totally going to copy you, Jason!!
