Why I like old boxes

I collect boxes and storage containers generally and choose items (mostly with some age) that ‘speak’ to me about their use. Some do get filled and shelved as storage but others seem to demand to be made into a scene that echoes a certain historical period.


This oak 1950s box demanded an interwar kitchen, containing the bare necessities to which – having carefully saved up – the inhabitants are beginning to add the ‘new’.

I finished off the window wall with a little more half-boarding, as that section runs next to the sink, and on the remaining width added a few nails to hang a useful cloth and a much needed shopping basket (containing the inevitable head-scarf).

The head-scarf is obviously new to the household as the print is in a very jazzy design

Both sides together, awaiting a box of vegetables, I think. But for the moment the small scene sits comforably in its new home.
