A few years back, I found this black box at a yard sale. I think I paid $5 for it. Even though the paint is a bit worn on the floral decoration, it intrigued me. It is a generous size; measuring about 2 feet across the front. It has a lid that lifts and a drawer on the bottom. The paint is chippy, which I LOVE! The color is black, which some may not like, but I just love mixing in black with my decor. It's like a dark neutral, don't you think?
This is a picture before I had hubby move the big knob on the top, down to the drawer on the bottom. I also had the sweetest little vintage metal pull that I got at an antique fair a few summers ago and never knew what to use it on. So, here it is now:
The inside is a bit rough, but I have big plans. I'm thinking a little sanding and a satin lining, maybe cream colored? Something a bit elegant to offset the chippiness of it all. What do you think?
