I promised to come back and show you what I did with the black stool I picked up at World Market.
A few weeks ago I made my first trip to Marburger Farms Antique Show. Oh my, it was amazing, so many fabulous treasures.
While there I found these fabulous antique boxes.
I was especially smitten with the whisky box as Perth is a city not far from where I grew up in Australia. Although I believe this originates from the Perth in Scotland, it still reminds me of home, and I couldn’t leave without it.
This is printed on the end of the box.
A little research found that it may truly be from 1836 or at least close to being a hundred years old, as the company changed names to “The Famous Grouse” in 1905.
It looked good, but now there was a big empty space where the old magazine basket was (just to the right of the box). I passed by, stared, day dreamed, imagined and agonized over this little arrangement for days and then, the perfect idea – I should put my magazine box on a peda-stool. And it wasn’t too long after that, that I found this stool on clearance at World Market. My original plan was for something with a pop of color, maybe teal or blue, but this was so perfect that, that plan went out the window. Who knows, maybe I’ll paint it someday.
Anyway, here it is, my antique whisky box on it’s peda-stool.
I’m really liking the way this looks, Do you have anything on a pedestal at your house?
