A Pre-Weekend Project Teaser

I’m sure you all are still pouring over the existing floor plans and making big plans for the weekend. I know I am! Continue casting your 50 final votes (you can vote 10 times per day!) in round one of our People’s Choice program, and get ready for round two coming up on Tuesday morning.

Until then, I had to share this picture that project manager Dylan Eastman recently sent over. He said he has been experimenting with some projects for this year’s DIY Network Blog Cabin.

What do you think he’s working on here? Let’s talk it up over some morning coffee.

  4. I'm going along with the Mason jar light theory.

  5. A lighting fixture of some sort out of a used up bottle of alcohol. Kerosene ? Electrical ?

  6. I was just wondering when we were going to find out what Dylans' mystery project is? Anybody have any answers to that? In case anyone would like to know, it is 47 degrees here in Florida. It's 10 a.m. and I am 2 hours south of Winter Haven. It was 37 degrees at dawn. No it's not as cold as many places but it is cold, especially with the wind chill factor. If I understand the weather man, it's not gonna get much warmer today. Good day and keep warm. xxxooo to everyone!<3:D

  8. Looks like lamp parts to me, Stained glass maybe with mason jars… What ever it is I'm sure it will be original!:D

  9. Kayla, Maybe you could remind Dylan that we (the bloggers) are still patiently waiting to hear what his mystery project is all about. I, for one, still have no idea what his teaser is. Some type of lighting is still my best guess. Kayla do you know or at least have a guess? I know that I have seen that glass piece before but I just cannot remember… Kayla please help, if you can.;)
