I bought this when I was at the Bouckville Antique Festival in August.
Even though it’s not an antique.
I paid $5 for it.
And no; I don’t plan on raising chickens anytime soon.
(although I can’t tell you how many people asked me where the chickens were as I schlepped this back to the car)
I really liked the simple metal latch and corner bands.
When I first saw it I could see it in the office, repurposed into a box for hanging files.
Only when I got it home I discovered it’s about an inch too narrow to hold the folder, and not wide enough to hold 2 rows side by side.
Uh-oh, now I have to find another purpose for it.
It’s too small to use as a coffee table.
Maybe as a side table, possibly with a glass top?
Or how about as an ottoman?
What do you think?
There’s got to be something cool I could use this for.
Or maybe I should just go shopping for those chickens after all.
Linking up this week to
Would you buy it? Wednesday at Junker Newbie’s place
