Vintage Inspired Safe Deposit Boxes (and a Giveaway)

Vintage Inspired Safe Deposit Boxes (and a Giveaway)



This giveaway is officially closed.

The winners are listed at the bottom.  

Thank you to all who entered!

A while ago I got an e-mail from Décor Steals asking me if we wanted to partner together for a deal of the day.



They must know I love a bargain.

They must have heard about my 90% off chairs and my $10 coffee crate organizers and that I shop by the side of the road…..

….and they knew bargain was my middle name.

Maybe even my first. 🙂

And so….for my deal of the day on Decor Steals….a deal just good for today….

….I picked (don’t you love a cliffhanger)……


…..these vintage inspired safe deposit boxes.


Aren’t they amazing?

I love Decor Steals.  Every day they offer an extra-special price on one deal that shows up in your in-box….

…..and today it’s my pick.

And now…this is the part of the post where you are putting down your cup of coffee for a closer look at the boxes and you think they’re a deal and you love the boxes and you think they would look incredible in your home….but you’re wondering…..

…..what in the world would I do with them?

I’m so glad you asked. 🙂


You could stack them on a desk in a study.

And you could fill them with notecards or paper or pencils or receipts or erasers or file folders or pens or scissors…..

….all while looking like the most organized person in America.


Or… could stack them on a counter in the kitchen.

And fill them with spare recipe cards or dishtowels or napkins or plastic silverware or napkin rings or a couple of cookbooks…..

….all while looking like the most organized person in the world.


Or you could stack them on a dressing table.

And fill them with scarves and flower pins or hair accessories or bobby pins or travel make-up bags or stationary…..

….all while looking like the most organized person on the planet.


Or you could stack them on a bookshelf in the family room.

And fill them with playing cards or dominos or magazines or pictures or extra remotes or scrabble tiles…..

….….(all together now) all while looking like the most amazingly organized person

in this entire galaxy. 🙂


Each box comes with a handle and a latch that you could lock if needed….


….and a hinged lid that folds back from the center.


The stackable galvanized metal file boxes come in a set….

…..and they sell for only $39.50 for all three. 🙂

You can click here to see all the product details.


Remember…Décor Steals only offers a limited amount of the boxes and they are only available for the next 24 hours and once they sell out….

….they are gone.

So get them while you can.  🙂

But here’s the best part.
