The Mort Family & A Glamorous Mirror Transformation

If you have been reading along with The Mort Family Project, you might remember this gallery wall in the hallway.  We repainted it this spicy red and made a gallery wall of family photos.  But, Can you pick out what I found in the trash? hallwaydone
