A couple of months ago my daughter was cleaning out the house that belonged to her deceased grandmother. She and her friend, Cary Melvin, were either working in the attic or the basement of the house and found two of these wooden boxes. Heather and Cary just knew it was a treasure I would love!
Fortunately the lid to the boxes was found too and we’re not sure why they didn’t throw them away but I’m so glad they did. I love to repurpose old things and some new. I scrubbed the inside and outside of this one and re-attached the lid.
Then I attached some picture hangers to the back of the box and hung it in our living room. It made a perfect display shelf for hubbies retired or unused turkey callers which made a great “turkey wall”.
The repurposed treasure looks pretty good beside the painted turkey feather hanging beside it along with a turkey beard.
Hubby was pretty impressed at this point because he was ready to use the box for kindling and couldn’t see why I was so excited about the dirty thing.
Thank you Heather and Cary for doing some treasure hunting at the home where your father was raised. I’m sure Papa Caldwell would be thrilled to know we used something he had saved for one reason or another.
