And I can't decide how I should finish it. Distress it? Leave it alone? Stain it? I'm going to peel all of the wallpaper out from the inside. I think I'm going to use it as a blanket box, and have an old quilt peeking out from under the lid. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm not sure how old it is. There was a piece of newspaper in the bottom dated 1946.
