Would You Buy It Wednesday?

I’m joining in on Junker Newbie's Would you buy it Wednesday? this week.  I really love this weekly post she does.  She posts something she has seen recently while out junking and then we all can chime in on whether or not we would have bought it too.  Then (and this is the best part) we can all submit our own objects.  So, this week I have this:

I’m really not sure what this actually is.  It’s a cute metal box that I think was used to hold 8mm movies, but I really don’t know that for sure.  Anyway, I saw it at Goodwill and decided I wanted it.  It was $2.00.  I have already started on the transformation of it.  I started by taping off the handle and clasp and painted it in Heirloom White.

I painted the outside and the inside as well.  I’ve decided I’m going to use it for a recipe box.  I am going to do some decorating of it now that it’s painted but I’m not quite done with that yet.  So, what do you think?  Would you have bought it?

I would have been tempted for sure, I like metal boxes just right after all my wood ones.

Probably would have bought it, because it is metal, and it was only $2.00.
