from inspiration to transformation

 This box caught my eye the minute I saw it a month or so ago.
I find old wooden boxes hard to resist, but there is a limit to how many a person needs....
It sat taking up space in our garage until I had a brainstorm over the weekend.
Fortunately, I have a live-in HandyMan to convert ideas into realities.
NOW we're talkin'!
The drawer was missing on an old side table we'd picked up somewhere,
so he unfastened the legs and attached them to the box.
I'll post the finished product after paint & other finishing touches.
(I think it may already be sold.)


  1. Beautiful, I love it with the pretty legs on it. That was a brilliant idea!
    Have a wonderful week. I'm off to Church Family Camp and won't be around for a while.
    hugs, Cindy

    1. Oh, what a wonderful week lies ahead for you, Cindy! I pray for much encouragement and many good times for EVERYone there.

  2. "Fortunately, I have a live-in HandyMan to convert ideas into realities" an understatement. You have a gem and a jewel of a husband and between the two of you, you rock!
    This looks beautiful already. I look forward to the finished photo.
    Hugs and love,

    1. I kind of verbally promised it to someone and am regretting it a little now that I see it. Thank you for the affirmation, Jackie!

  3. What a great idea! Can't wait to see it in its final presentation. Wonder what color you are going to do it! Susan

  4. Rebecca, that is such a fantastic idea! I can't wait to see it when it's finished!

  5. I always enjoy the furniture make overs you and your husband do but I think this one is my all time favorite. Anxious to see the finished project.


  6. You are so creative. Can't wait to see the finished project.

  7. OMG I LOVE it... the Patina of the Old Box and the Wonderfully Creative Transformation to Upcycle it with those Gorgeous Salvaged Vintage Table Legs! This is something that when I'd see it for Sale, I'd be Lusting after! *Winks* Thanks for coming by for a Blog Visit, you're always so Encouraging!

  8. Note: As you can see I'm a Fan of the 'don't paint it leave the fab old Patina alone' ilk! *Winks*
