Hi! I haven't "seen" you in awhile. :) Yes, you did a great job finding a perfect spot for your metal box. I have a couple of old ones too that I just love.

Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Good eye! I love metal boxes - and you're right...when you love something, it will naturally fit in somewhere.
Maybe it will also be used in your kitchen - a little industrial touch.
Everything's looking beautiful!
Happy Holidays my friend :)

These boxes always catch my eye just as your post did with it.
I have a collection stacked like old suitcases in my master bedroom
I just can't get enough of them but they are so hard to find at a reasonable price anymore.
this is a great one!!!

I like it!! Very industrial + Nordic/French chic. :)) It is going to quickly become a decorating staple for so many styling projects of yours.. nice find! It's good to know I am not the only one who stirs in bed at night dreaming about decor plans.. I'm sure your new kitchen design will be develope wonderfully + it will all just come to you out of the blue. Enjoy the week~

Chrissy,
Its been way to long, so here I am and enjoying the inspiration with your box. I will always follow my heart and buy what I love, when I get it home I let it tell me where it wants to rest :)

I don't have a metal box yet, but you now have inspired me to keep a look out for one!

See you soon.
xx
Blessings
