    Hello, this is a rugged old blue painted box. Hinged lid and old nails--not indubitably solid though. Not sure of intended use? I like the way it looks :) It is approx. 21 in x 12 in x 12 in. Thanks for looking! Julie

      It is not overly festooned with hardware either -- but a lovely box nonetheless. Usually a handle on the top suggests document box but by the pics it is hard to tell the size (thanks for the specs though). Does it slant with a hinge? That would suggest tool box. I wouldn't say it was superannuated though... lots of secondary life in this gem...
    2. Jewels Jewels, 6 years ago
      :) Thanks trunkman! While this box will never be accused of being ostentatious, its use to store things was a polestar for me. It does not slant with the hinge. It really is quite flimsy, as it is made from some thin boards, but holds together okay :) I believe it would be too prodigious for a document box? :)
    3. trunkman trunkman, 6 years ago
      Well the handle may be somewhat superfluous -- which is throwing me off as to its usage. I would concur with your assessment -- and surmise that perhaps its purpose was merely utilitarian... :) and bravo.... had to look up polestar...

      :))) use it in a casual sentence today :)

      Is there another word for thesaurus? I don't know...:)

      Yes there is!!! Synonym finder! (I looked it up) This is a cool site to use for the Thesaurus. That word I have a hard time saying... http://www.visualthesaurus.com/

      I love boxes too Julie. Did you ever get the odor out of the make-up case?

      I've had flimsy ones like this too and just use them till I can't use them anymore...

      I really like it! It has a primitive look to it.

      Hi Julie
      Nice find, agree with Scott, primitive look.
      Hope you not plan to remove the colour, look nice.
      Love it.

      Regards
      Alan

      Hi Share! Thank you! And thank you for the link :) Yes, pretty much got the odor out, wiped down with vinegar :) Thanks again!
    14. Jewels Jewels, 6 years ago
      Thanks Scott! That it does, it looks better in person :)
    15. Jewels Jewels, 6 years ago
      Hi Alan, thank you! Oh no, I wouldn't do that at all, I like it rustic and worn :)Best to you! Julie
