Beautiful Box!

I would save that box from a pile of give away items too. Love it!

I love the idea of using it for a plant holder. Like the previous poster said I would put the plant in a clear glass container before placing in the box as it will be clear and keep the eye focused on the wood and greenery rather than a decorative or terra-cotta pot.

I would probably embellish the box by carefully staining the slats three different shades with wood stain. I would choose a very dark one and then a red one to use with the more neutral shade that has already been used on the box. I would cover the other slats with paint tape as I stained with each color in case of drips.

Then I might embellish with some upholstery nails as well to give it a richer texture.

Finally, I would seek out a couple of additional unique boxes to add to the display. Both would be smaller than this one but not the same size for variety. Since this one looks so new I might consider an older mitered box and then maybe one that includes some natural stone like turquoise or brass for color.

Enjoy your beautiful box whatever you decide to do.
