Glad my quote inspired you BR but I doubt you needed it. That is a sweet box and is perfect for any way you choose to use it. Great idea for it. Can't wait to see your redo.

Thank you Everyone!
JC, I am not sure if it is old since I found it at Marshalls recently. It's probably a similar reproduction.
Mary Ruth and KG, Yes, those lids had to be displayed too.
VG, I will share the rest too. Still have lots of work to do.

Indeed, repurposing, reconfiguring and just plain RETHINKING objects and using them in unexpected ways is what makes for a memorable space. I've always been a fan of this "out of the box" thinking. You can definitely train your mind's eye to see the potential in just about everything. These well chosen/placed objects and touches keeps things personal and far from boring. Sometimes they take some tweeking (as has been beautifully illustrated), but often the possibilities are limited only by one's imagination. This is a great way to utilize what you already have or to obtain an inexpensive, seemingly mundane object and breathing new life into it.
