SHOPPING THE GARAGE, PART TWO

 Bob often brings me something from the garage; and asks if I want it, or should he just sell it?  Recently, that something was this wooden box that he bought at a yard sale for $2.  I usually  bring it in the house to give it an audition, and then decide later if I want to keep it.

Boxes like this make great storage.  
They often have wonderful details and great character.
 The problem is where do I put another box that is storing magazines that I probably should be throwing away?  

What do you think?  Should I 'love it or list it'?

I'm linking to the following blog parties.  Please check them out for lots of inspiration.

Well I hope you'll list it for purely selfish reasons *winks* BUT if it were mine?...I would keep it for sure. It's just too hard to find boxes so well made and old with such great character....just sayin' Vanna

It's definitely a keeper box in my book Sally! They look so good stacked together or a bunch stacked on top of each other so it won't take up a lot of room!

Looking forward to seeing you soon friend!
