Try to say that five times fast! The blanket box and bread pan are my coffee table and my table top organizer. I was lucky enough to get the blanket box from my grandparents when my husband and I moved into our first home. It is one of our favourite pieces of furniture and I love that it has lots of family history.
These days it doesn’t hold blankets, but conceals our 9 zillion VHS tapes (most of them 80′s classics I might add!). I love the engravings, dovetailing and the fact that it’s just tall enough to keep our six year old Great Dane from investigating what food might be sitting on top.
I found the bread pan a few months ago at a store called The Timeless Material Company in Waterloo. They re-claim and re-purpose building materials, furniture, and architectural items from old buildings. They had a pile of them by the entrance and I couldn’t pass up on the $15 price tag! What a score!
I’m so happy with how perfectly the bread pan fits on our coffee table and how it orgainzes our remote controls, coasters and other bits and pieces that need a home. My only regret is that I should have bought more of them!
