Ice Ice Baby!

So yesterday, I was told a friend had some furniture laying around that he was trying to get rid of. Enough said; I hopped in my car and drove over. I didn’t even know what he had but of course I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take a look! He had some tables, a bench, a bunch of chairs…and this:


What exactly is it you ask? Well he had no idea and neither did I. There’s a little metal compartment in there which could honestly have been used for anything.


After doing some googling, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s an old wooden ice box! I could be wrong but I found a couple similar images and that’s what they were labeled as. Whatever it is, I’m super excited about it and can’t wait to figure out what to do to it! It already has such a cool vintage look I almost don’t want to paint it. Perhaps I’ll just redo the inside. AH decisions, decisions.

Have you ever seen one of these? Am I totally wrong in saying that it’s an ice box?! I want to know everything I can about this little gem so please let me know!

Hope you all have a fabulous day!

  1. I’ve seen these out & about and have always been told they were humidors…for storing cigars. The inside is sometimes copper or sheet metal…whatever it is it’s adorable! and so glad it was rescued!

  2. great save!! i think i would just clean/fix it up and then leave it as is. I like the Old red look, but hey that’s me.please post what you end up doing with it!!
