Rustic Wooden Boxes

Wishing you a belated Happy Easter one and all!

Hope everyone had a wonderful long easter weekend and had your fill of chocolate bunnies, easter eggs and hot cross buns! I know i did!

I spent the weekend walking in circles really wondering what project to take up next but having the no energy or motivation to start anything... bit frustrating really so i am sad to say nothing was really achieved over the weekend in the DIY department of the whimsical wife. I did try to do finish off some more "french" cushions but my sewing maching chucked it in and chewed the thread up and spat it out! So i gave up! My husband however was busy over the weekend completing stage 1 of our deck and retaining wall area. Pictures to come! So something was achieved at the "Whimsical House....." hmmmm still haven't got a name yet!

Anyway what i have been thinking about is what to do with a couple of old rustic wooden boxes that i picked up at a few garage sales in the last month *at bargain prices*!(Picture to come) but i thought i would find a few inspirational photos of some of the things people have done with rustic wooden boxes that i maybe able to use with these boxes.

Love the idea of using them as simple storage containers for my everyday items such as napkins and placemats.

I love the idea of using them on the walls to display knick knacks and other items is cute!

Even the use of castor wheels on the bottom of the boxes as movable storage is a great idea!

Maybe i could used them as part of a rustic sideboard? Hmmm

Or even using it for a herb garden.... very quaint!

Idea's..... Idea's..... there is so many of them! What do you think?
