Well, let's don't rush into anything just yet.....maybe I could repurpose it into something useful or pretty! I ruled out pretty right away....that's not a word I would use to describe an old cash register.
So, H and I put our heads together and this is what we came up with.
By putting the side table up on the typewriter stand and turning the cash register around, I had a place to extend the drawer.
The top of the register was missing, so H put a board across it and nailed an old safe drawer (also from his office) across the top of the board. I filled the safe drawer with violets and succulents.
The cash register drawer is perfect for napkins......
Candles, small snacks, drinks......anything we might need while we sit on the porch
