Remember The Box

Remember a week or so ago I asked for advice on the box I had painted years ago for my husband's dresser? Well, there were several opinions. A few said they liked it as is and would mix the woods in the room with no problem. Others said paint it black or distress the edges after painting it and one said they loved red.
I thought about each of the ideas and was talking to Ceekay (thinking of home) about them. She brought up the idea of displaying it sitting up like a picture so it could be appreciated. After all, it wasn't being seen by many up on a chest in the bedroom. I couldn't even see it, unless I took it down to dust.
I didn't even know if it would stand up and knew it was too thick to go on any stand. Low and behold the little button knob holds it up like it is on a stand.
This is the box, in case some of you didn't see it before, and the following pics show it in it's new location.
Let me here your feedback on what you think, ok?
I didn't have a duck of any kind and walked into Ross the other day and it was the only one on a shelf staring right at me saying, "Here I am, take me home." I was so excited. (I had told Ceekay I was going to be on the lookout for one.) Anyway I got to the register and the checkout girl noticed a little chip on one wing. It would be facing away from people and not that noticeable so I asked for a discount and she gave me 30% off. I was thrilled and here it is.
I put it on a shelf between the two baby pictures that I recently posted about.
I hope you're having a fabulous week!

Duh! I took me two or three minutes to figure out you had recreated the scene in the box. I love what you did!
