Ohhhh. Your project sounds cool. I want to see photos when you're finished!
I'm thinking of either doing a top for my patio table. I have an awful, slapped together patio table that could use some juicing up.
The other area I'm thinking might be cool is at the header on the stairs -- something between the private (upstairs) area of the house and the public (downstairs) area..... hmmmm....
Mr. B is already all "oh.... please..... just go buy some art supplies....."
