Three Thirty in the Morning...

That's where all of the best ideas are found.

I got the idea for the leading for the mirror and window yesterday at that time.  I also thought of doing it another way... see below.

Then I went back to sleep.

This morning I thought of doing the frame in copper tooling and the leading in copper also...

Not necessarily the best idea in the world.  Just more work.  I would have to cover the wood with the copper to give it the thickness that it needs.  But by tooling, and adding wire, I could do some spirals and lines to match the shower curtain...

Just more work, indeed!
I want to put some shelves in the  living room around the fireplace... Another 3:30 AM idea...

I have to stop waking up at three thirty.  Note to Kota!

I came up with tree bookshelves.  I have seen some built of regular wood planks in this shape, but I would rather it look like a real tree. 

I don't know if it will work, but I am going to try. 

It's one of those ideas that seemed like a good one at the time... We shall see. 

I am off to bake banana bread now... Then back to work.

See you tomorrow.

I'm impressed with the fact that you went back to sleep!

I get some of my best ideas while trying to go to sleep! I like all of the organic curves you are creating for this project. Keep up the good work.

Great ideas, Casey. So Kota is waking you up? That's what cats do! lol!

Nothing like working even more magic in this Forest Fantasy bathroom. Looking forward to seeing how your Early Morning Madness turns out. :))
