Multi Purpose Milk Box

We have a vintage metal milk box that lives in the corner of our powder bath. I picked it up at a garage sale for $5 about a year ago.  

I love things that serve multiple functions.  This little milk box holds a few basic cleaning supplies that I don't want to be visible on the shelf under the sink.  (Obviously, you would want to keep them in a more secure location if you have small children in the house who might ingest hazardous materials!)

I wasn't planning on it serving this purpose, but it didn't take long for my youngest to figure out that it also makes a handy step stool.  You will usually find it right smack in front of the sink instead of tucked away in the corner.  We're still working on putting it back in it's place.  :)

After I realized that this was going to become a habit, I stuck some felt furniture pads on the bottom so it wouldn't scuff the floor as she was dragging it.

It's not what I originally intended, but sometimes happy accidents are the best ones!
