Not sure what this was or even what it will be, all I know is that I like it! Found it at a flea market, thought it might be something you put in a pot for canning fruits and vegetables, but I don't think it was that. Maybe something to put in a roaster? Well anyway, I liked it the way it was but I wanted to do something to it, so for a quick redo I wrapped it with fabric that was torn in strips, and wound it around the frame.
