ideas for flour bin

Posted by Hallngarden (My Page) on

Hi Folks: Need some ideas, not sure if I can describe what I have. It came out of a 1940s kitchen cabinet. It is a bin about 15 inches high with an opening on the top to put in flour, on the bottom has a handle to turn and the flour would come out. This was in our kitchen back in the 40's and the old cabinet rusted away and this is all that is left. The entire piece is metal. My 86 year old mom had this stored away and gave it to me last week. I have looked at this piece and nothing comes to mind yet. I'm sure you creative thinking folks will have some wonderful ideas. Thanking you in advance for your thoughts. Hallngarden

Could you put a bottom in it and display something in it? I don't know, something like potpourri or seashells, or something?

Sorry, I'm braindead right now - maybe I'll come up with something better later.
