It wasn't till after the paint dried that this appeared to resemble a sarcophagus. My dear Mum bought it for me in the first place for 10 cents and I have no need for more boxes. I added wood to the lid and base, painted it all over... it's going back to her the next time we visit and I'll probably get a bunch of dollar store crap form her again. If I redecorate all this stuff and give it back every time, she might get the hint to stop. At any rate, this could be a nice little box to store her rosaries and other religious bits.
