Definitely too cool to throw out...
I had two table legs left from another project...went to Lowes, bought two more to match..then cut them all down to a smaller size.  

My husband was cleaning out his workroom.  I intercepted this cool wood box designated for the recycle bin. (you'd think he'd know better by now)  Turns out to be an Czech ammo box.  My daughter came up w/ the idea of painting the legs red and distressing them...they bring out the red in the stamps on the side of the box.  Quirky..but fun.
