I made these to brighten up a corner of our dining room.

Barb made the macrame plant holder.

These are made out of Mahogany corner molding used for paneling.

We used Gold tinted mirror tiles.

Macrame, that brings back some memories making those with my sister. The mirrors add depth to the corner and make it look bigger. Thanks for posting.

I agree with Grant, the Macrame brings back memories for me too since I use to make hangers for my mom and later for me when I lived on my own. My bay window’s width is a bit too narrow to put one of here I think so that it would have enough room.

I think the mirror and the hanger both came out great.

Great idea, Dick. The mirrors make the plant look three times its actual size.

I don’t think macrame will every cease. Well done Barb & Dick.

Hi Barb and Dick;

So you are both very talented huh?

No wonder you have been together for so long.

Great job to you both.
