 After sanding you can put on a few coats of stain. Once that dries, it's time to seal the wood. Wait 24 hours and then you can start assembling the sconce.   Have fun!

Recipes you can read made easy while cooking in the kitchen - from Etsy! When creating a recipe in the kitchen a device to hold a phone or tablet can be a so helpful. In the past few years there have been a few options but they all seem a bit bulky. I just found this hand made wooden kitchen tablet holder on Etsy at https://www.etsy.com/listing/209757898/storage-organization-back-to-school-gift It’s so simple and for $31.70 what a great option! You better purchase this fast, only 30 are left!

Helpful Kitchen hints for 2017 - Clean Slate The New Year is a great time to start a “Clean Slate” especially in the kitchen. My first plan of attack is to go from cabinet to cabinet and empty everything out. I usually find expired snacks and drinking glasses that never get used anymore or even glasses that are chipped. I toss the chipped glasses and old snacks then donate anything I don’t use or need. This always gets me in the right direction of going clutter free and organized for the New Year.
