French Typography Box

Did you ever see something at the thrift 
store that you weren't quite sure what it was?


I found this wooden thing that I was pretty sure
was once someone's Jr. High shop project...


As a matter of fact on the back it had 
the name Tammy with the year 1978.

I wasn't sure what this box was, but I knew what it could be...


I had in mind a graphic from the 


The shape of this French typography was perfect for this project!


See what I mean?


I thought this would make a great small planter... 
or candle holder...
or both.


And then I thought it would be the perfect place
to hold small appetizer dishes 
or napkins...


It may have once been a Jr. High shop project... 
but it sure looks good now!

Available on my Etsy shop if you love it!

  1. I do love this! I love it with the plates and you're right, napkins would look pretty displayed in there too!

  2. It looks great, Susan! I love how it looks and the many different ways you could use it. I did find something once at the thrift store that looked like it was a shop project. It painted up nicely and I put it in my booth.
