I picked up this military box from Class and Trash the other day.
This is how it looked when I bought it...
And here it is after I did some scrubbing with vinegar and a brush.
I am so drawn to this industrial/military stuff! I love that there is probably some amazing story about where this box has traveled. It's fun to imagine the places it has been.
So I'm in the process of cleaning it up and would love to hear your thoughts. I think I'm going to put casters on the bottom and sell it in my space as a coffee table. I'm toying with the idea of painting or rub n buffing the metal edges to fancy it up a bit. I'm kind of torn because I don't want to mess with the integrity of the piece but kind of want to glam it up.
What would the Picker Sisters do!?!?! I'm sure they read my blog ;) Maybe they will leave me a comment! But until then, what do you all think?
