Antique Hardware Bin

I didn’t make this copper banded hardware bin, but I made it better.


All this gorgeous aging is natural.


I made it better by repairing and refreshing the bottom.

After filling thin spots in the bottom with wood filler, I covered a false bottom with a burlap coffee bag to tidy up the looks.


It’s for sale in my shop, The Little Blue Trunk on Etsy.

If you have a cat she’ll claim it for her own, otherwise it’s ideal for holding magazines, newspapers, TV remotes, game controllers, dog toys, balls of yarn, fabric scraps, embroidery projects, building blocks, Legos, and who knows what else! I’m going to miss it when it sells!

What would you use it for?
