I was in need of a wreath for my front door. I found this in my collection from flea markets of "junk that I hope to someday find a purpose for". This was an old mirror frame.

Yeay!!!! Also new floors!!! And GRANITE counters!!
This is why the house was covered in dust for months on end. We completely
