a box, some linen, and a sewing machine

If you're a regular reader, you know how I love this wooden box.  I've blogged about it here and here.  Now I'm going to let you in on a little secret which, when you see the next image, will not come as much of a surprise.

It's very clearly homemade from inexpensive boards and plywood.  Over it's lifetime, we've changed out the legs so that it could serve as a:

sofa table, buffet, television stand, bookcase...

In the new house, we added the shorter set of legs and yesterday I made a simple linen cover to disguise its...homemade-ness.

And now, it's just plain pretty

with storage underneath.

Toddlers and their beloved cardboard boxes have nothing on me.

And as for the house...

we're getting there cheaply and slowly - but surely.
