2nd Time Around: A Wooden Box

Jackson 005

 

Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale, etc. Please link your post rather than your blog, and link back to this blog. Thank you for participating.

I ‘won’ this cute wooden box at the same auction that I blogged about a couple of weeks ago. I really love it, but like the hall tree, I think I paid too much for it, so it will stay with me! I haven’t decided what to do with it. It is one of my many unfinished projects! Tell me what you think I should do with it? I’m thinking of using it as a planter. I would love to hear your suggestions!

It is a lovely box! I agree fall colors will be spectacular in it.

I love this box! A planter would be great, but I would line it with something so the wood will not rot. I can see it being used as a neat Tea Tray for outdoor Tea! You could use it for towels, bath lotions, Oh, you have some many ways you could use this wonderful box!

Neat box,

I think it would be cool filled with vintage toys. Old windup cars, a wooden train, some blocks...

Diane, I really like your box. I don't know about you, but it is so easy for me to get carried away with bidding at an auction. Since I am currently shopping my house to find something to put on the coffee table to put photographs in, I think this would be perfect for that. Thanks for hosting 2nd Time Around. laurie

Gorgeous Box - The detailing is incredible! Great find! So happy to be joining in the fun this week! Thanks for hosting! Hope you enjoy your week!

Hi Diane, I love your box. It is rustic and right up my alley. Little pots of flowers would look great in there. Or fall leaves of course. Smile.

I didn't link to you today because I posted about our anniversary. Next week I'll be back. The heart plate is a Good Will find though. $5. and it wasn't made in China. I gave it to my sister for her birthday. We always give little 'I love you' small gifts. The heart was perfect.

Have a happy day.
Hugs xoxo, Jeanne

It's pretty, Diane. I like it. It must be good to store anything nice in it. I hope you can join us on our MS bloggers get together on June 5th. Please let me know so I would know how much lunch to prepare for...Christine

Love that box - I think you're right on with the planter, that's what I'd use it for as well. So pretty, great find!

Thanks for hosting, I'm looking forward to browsing the links during Idol tonight! ;)

Hi Diane, Just stopping by to say hello. I will be joining in for tomorrow's event. I hope your venture in selling your great finds is doing well. I loved selling antiques when I was in a mall and doing shows. I think of you often because I miss the fun of that time in my life. I miss the 'hunt' more than anything else. I look forward to seeing your Tuesday's posts very much.

Enjoy your day.
Hugs, Jeanne
