Decorate an Old Wooden Box

I love it when I find old wooden boxes, sewing machine drawers, tool boxes, etc. If they are reasonably priced, they might find a place in my home.

This little yellow box, was found at a local antique mall a few years ago.  It recently was used to store some silverware, and stashed inside the china cabinet. Yesterday, I decided I wanted to put it out so I could enjoy it.

I'm using it for a punch of color on the bookcase.  I shopped the house for items and came up with this.


This wonderful red candy dish, a bunch of red roses, and a small green pitcher of ivy.


 I think it adds just the punch of color this mostly white bookcase needs.


Do you use old boxes for decorating?  Try it, they bring texture, and interest to your decor.


As an aside, look at this sweet bird house my daughter had made for me back in the 80's.  The little nail keg on the porch actually has tiny nails.  My former name was Adams, so the sign says, Adams General Store.  Isn't it the cutest thing?!! It sits beside the box on the bookcase.
