Porthole Mirror

Nothing gives me quite the thrill as looking over a new catalog and finding something
 I like...

source

Nothing that is, except realizing that 
I have all the pieces and can makit myself!



I knew I had an old chippy, round, nautical 
thingy and a rope....
and I knew I had a round mirror...



but how happy was I when they were
 actually a perfect fit!

I love it when that happens!



Boom! 
Instant porthole mirror...





Hey there!
