I didn't buy it at the time, but as the days passed, I couldn't stop thinking about it.
So, as any self-respecting thrift store addict would do, I went back to see if it was still there.
And it wasn't.
I was so disappointed.
But I cannot waste a GW trip, so I wandered around the store looking for another treasure.
Much to my surprise, I found the box tucked away in a spot that it wouldn't usually have been in.
And that's how this little box came to live at our house.
But, I have a dilemma....
I can't decide what to do with it.
It definitely needs a paint job.
However, I can't decide if I like the carved wheat on the top.
Should I get some wood filler? Should I leave it as is?
Should I replace the wrought iron hinges? Should I keep them?
Should I replace the little white handle or work some spray paint magic on it?
And then there is the gut wrenching decision of what color to paint it....
So I ask all of you, my thrift store make-over peeps--
What would you do? Do tell!!!
