Names on the wall

You know that weird stuff left over from a repurposed project? You know what I mean. Table legs you cut to shorten a table. Weird handles left from a cabinet. Random things that normally might end up in the trash. That's were I got my inspiration for today's project... the trash can. I literally picked these metal ring up ready to chuck them when I realized I was throwing away a treasure.

These were left over from the chandelier I repainted a few days ago. They adorned the glass lamp shade and they were ugly. Upon closer inspection however, I realized these ugly little rings would make perfect frames. Since I was looking to put Owen's name on his bedroom wall I thought these might make nice little frames for the letters of his name.

Now both of my boys have their names on the wall. The room is officially theirs.
