While cleaning out Horror Monster's Outdoor Living Section, I came across this big old box.
It has been out in the yard for years.
It is three feet long and eighteen inches wide.
Constructed of one inch lumber with metal strapping.
Once painted green and white, it had faded to just wood, but still sturdy.
It has held pots of plants.
It was used on a metal base as a table.
Last year it sat on a table to hold my collection of watering cans.
I had it in the group to take to the booth, but I could not let it go.
So instead I painted it gray and stained it Mission Oak.
And lugged that heavy sucker into the living room.
(Which BTW is still clean and clear of junk.)
We have a massive blanket chest in front of the sofa.
I used the hooked rug I found at the thrift store under the big old box.
At first I planned to put a glass top over a collection a smalls inside the big old box, but Azalee found the glass too interesting.
I was afraid she would knock it off and shatter the glass.
You know curiosity killed the cat!
I went with a baby quilt, some bottles, a bunch of beads and some books.
I rather like it.
I think the big old box is staying for awhile.
