More red – DIY palm frond lamp

Frond~ {Compound leaf of a fern, palm or cycad}

These palm leaves are found almost all over. I picked up one a while back and immediately knew I wanted to make a lamp with it. It is really strong and takes forever to decompose. Thus this is a good way to re-purpose (except use as firewood!)

It makes a great night light and it adds to the red pops of colour in the decor. We celebrate our first month in our new container home today! That explains the boxes under the table! Remember our project is constantly in progress. But I am glad to say we take it one day and dime at a time. Debt-free living requires sacrifice and patience!

Till next time!

    I like what you are doing with the place. Where did you get this concept (house building) from and where do one order from?

      Thanks again Stanley! We have been dreaming and conceptualising this dream for the last 5 years! We were introduced to it through a charity we worked for. It is exciting but challenging! We are hoping to have to house completed by April 2016!
