Please forgive the photos, the 'box' still needs some TLC, so you're viewing it in its 'raw' state!
As you can see, it has a little drawer in the front. And the back of the 'box,' lifts up to reveal a cubby sort of thing.
I've thought of several uses for this, but I'm still curious as to what it is, what it was initially intended to be used as/for. So, if anyone has a clue, I'd love to know!
