What to create with a Porthole?

I have a great porthole I'd love to make something with. I've seen them used as mirrors, medicine cabinets, tables, etc. What would you do with this?

Cat toy? LOL! I'm really not sure, but I love all things nautical, including portholes. Cute cats! We have two as well.

Could you have glass installed in it and use it in your home in an interior wall somewhere where privacy is not an issue?

Hang it as is-as a frame-with a beautiful vacation/beach/boat photo

Door window, like:


Wall mounted shadow box for nautical objects? (or small mermaid sculpture?) Lid for cookie jar? Light cover?

How about putting it in a cabinet like in a bathroom or use like a frame for an ocean picture?

A clock. That is if you need a pothole looking clock somewhere.

Your two cats are asking for a door of their own.

Go Nautical Collections
You can cut out a mirror for it, and use on the wall.
