I bought this lantern a few weeks ago from goodwill, and later found out that it’s actually quite an interesting buy – It’s a barn lantern from the early 19th century, which is AWESOME! It’s very rustic and if you know me, you know I LOVE rustic. So I decided to turn it into something I can display on my christmas table.
