      Glad you enjoyed it, Traci! Thanks:)

  2. i am a couple years late to commenting on this article but I just found it! I think that the box end was part of a packaging box that originally contained who knows what and that particular piece was used to create the sectioned box you now own. I have a 30″ high kitchen cupboard with opening glass doors on the upper part that was most likely made by a grandpa, for his granddaughter so she could play house with her dollies. My piece also has a shelf and one of the sides made from old wooden crates that were used to ship fruit way back when. Everything was recycled back then and nothing was thrown out. I feel these pieces of boxes and crates add to the charm of the pieces they helped to create once upon a time! Lora, I just love your style and the way you describe everything you write about. I will never get tired of rereading your blogs!

      You’re too sweet, Pam! It’s always a special treat to find one of those hobbled together handyman projects where they’ve used old fruit crates, or anything else! Makes the piece even more charming! That’s why I always look in the basement or the garages of estate sales where they’ve been hiding for years;)

  3. I would venture a guess at “None Better Made”, a lot of things were, and still are advertised with that slogan, hard to think what would be small and displayed in a divided box for men, women and children though.

      I think you’re right, Mary Ann! Must have been some type of accessory, maybe? I may never know…

  4. My goodness… if this doesn’t scream fall I don’t know what does. So so gorgeous! I adore how the sections have the ability to highlight the smallest details. WANT!

    I’m featuring this project in this weekend’s upcoming DIY Salvaged Junk Projects. Thanks for linking up! 🙂
