DIY Reading Lamps, by Mat

I needed some better light to read by at night as I doze myself to sleep.  Mat got thinking and came up with these awesome industrial looking, swivel-swinging lights.  He really tries to stick to a project a week or every two weeks depending on his time.  These projects work out great for me!  I read a chapter last night from my Irish Country Wedding (previous post)

Here are the girls helping?

 or dancing?

Comments from the peanut gallery

I was getting ready in the bathroom hearing all this.
Micah: "Dad are you sure it's okay that you're drawing on the wall with pencil."
Mat: "Yes it's okay," then chuckles.
Micah:" I don't think Mom would want you putting holes in the wall?"
Mat:"I bought this house, meaning I get to do what I want with it."
Gretchen:"I want Dad to show me how to make a daisy chain."

As you can see by the tag on the photo, Mat started a blog with his DIY project  You can check it out if you're wanting to do some of your own.

Mat's birthday to come, once I get the photos published on Flickr.
