    This is such a great box! So unique, well made and useful! It looks great on my mantel full of my favorite books and I am debating about getting a couple more. A neat addition to my home 🙂

    Love these boxes! I ordered a large and a small at first, then had to have one more of the small ones!

    I absolutely love this box! I plan to it for all seasons! It’s very well made and I love that it comes from an old barn in Ohio. My shopping experience was seamless! I’ll be sure to purchase more items through Monica Potter Home! Wonderful company!

    This is the first time I’ve ordered the small barn boxes; I now have 6 of the larger ones! I like the size a lot and when I watched a recent episode of “Welcome Back Potter” with Monica and her Mother and Sisters, they used even longer versions of the barn boxes to make wall planters – love that idea! I am thinking of using these small barn boxes to make indoor planters myself. Monica, the new show is EXCELLENT! I am really enjoying watching you and your family restore your family home.

    With this most recent purchase, I now have 6 large barn boxes and 2 small ones! I, too, am a fan of the history of these boxes and where they come from. I have taken 4 of the 6 large boxes and stacked them one on top of the other crisscrossing them and then decorating the little “pockets” that the crisscrossing creates. I’ve used silk flowers, miniature pumpkins, holly at Christmas, Easter Eggs at Easter, etc – great way to decorate for the seasons. I just purchased the 2 small ones and am still thinking of how to use them. I have my daughter 2 of the larger ones and she enjoys decorating with them too.

    Any chance of including the French cleat hanger with the boxes at some point?

    So beautiful! I love this box and the history it represents. It was packaged perfectly and shipped quickly. Thank you for an excellent shopping experience.

    I have a small and a large . . just love them!!

  10. Dana

    Love my Vintage Barn Box. Made very well. Actually was just thinking about purchasing another one.

  11. Jon-Paul Davis

    I purchased a few of these for my wife. She loves them!

    Once we were able to get our cats out of them, she was able to organize her book shelf with them.

    I love that they are made from re-purposed wood. They have a ton of character, much like my wife. 🙂

    Just received my 2 barn boxes and I love, love, love them! They are very sturdy and well made. I use them in my studio to corral wayward pens, pencils and supplies. I will be buying more. They have so many uses. did I mention I love them :O)

  13. Ann Geraci

    I love my Barn Box. I feel as though I have a part of American History in my home. I have it in my bathroom to keep tissues and make up in. I will be buying another barn box in the future. Thanks Monica

  14. Janet Baran

    Love my barn box!! Simple elegance is the way I would describe it. Have been looking at the boxes for awhile now and decided to treat myself before the holidays. I filled it with fresh evergreens and Christmas treasures. Thank you, Monica 🙂

  15. Mark Tisdale

    I can’t wait to give the barn box I ordered to my wife Christmas! As native Ohioans, we both love connections back to home and this is going to be a nice addition to our home. The edition number on the bottom looks hand etched which is cool. The note and lip balm provided in the shipping materials was a very nice touch!

  16. Lisa

    This is the second Barn Box I’ve ordered. They are beautiful and each is very unique. As an Ohioan they have sentimental value. I’d like it if you offered a taller version to put a plant in, concealing the container. Just a thought.

    Love this! Bought with large and season in box and they are great. I have loads of ideas for them and will be getting more for Christmas gifts! Sturdy, rustic, great size and great quality for a super reasonable price.

  18. Ann Marie

    Love this! Has so many uses! Bought small and season in box and happy with all 3. Can use for displays, frames, and as part of hostess gift. Great value and quality.

    LOVE my Vintage Barn Box….. I loved it from the first time I saw it but I was nervous of what it would look like in person. Finally, I took the plunge and ordered it. Now I want more and wish I had ordered them. The quality surpassed all expectations. The bottom is smooth and the colors are perfect. My box has a reddish hue on the one side and more natural on the other. Perfect for all the holidays. Right now I have a candle with fall leaves on it and gourds and acorns….. Pretty darn cute if I say so myself. For Christmas I’m thinking greens and vintage ornaments…. or maybe ……. ideas are endless.

    a perfect size for my coffee table. Love it!

  21. Danis

    Love my Vintage Barn Box! It fits right in my rustic & eclectic home! I love all the ideas I’ve read, but plan on finding a planter box to fit inside & use it to grow fresh herbs on my kitchen counter. My whole box of the goodies I ordered was so beautifully packed… very impressed!

  22. Samantha

    I love this reclaimed barn wood box! It is on my kitchen counter and I put my bottles of wine in it. I love Monica’s mission to help local artisans and repurposing old materials!

    Love this little size barn box… I purchased the bigger barn box also… But this smaller size one is so cute and comes in handy because of its smaller size…

  24. Cindy

    I have wanted a barn box from the first day I saw it. Finally I was able to get it. It is every bit as beautiful and wonderful as it appears in pictures! I love love love it! I do plan to get at least one more. It has so many uses. Right now I am using the one I got on my coffee table to hold coasters, books, tv remotes.

  25. Jacalyn

    I love my barn box…. It travels around my house from room to room… I’m always finding cute new ways to display things in it… My box was # 12, I ordered early as soon as I saw them… What a great purchase, I LOVE IT!!!

  26. Tracy Kellum

    I received this beautiful box from a close friend. It wasn’t my birthday or a special celebration. It was a ‘just because’ gift. The meaning behind the box is just as special as the box. I am not certain what I will do with or where I will place it, but it deserves something special!

  27. Kayla Ziese

    Absolutely in love with my Vintage Barn Box! It makes a great addition to my home and has some red on it which is perfect as red is a staple color in my home. I was raised in NE Ohio and have not been able to make it back in over 6 years and I do surely miss it! Now I have a little piece of NE Ohio in my new home and I couldn’t be more happy! Thank you!!

  28. Molly Garcia

    I literally opened the box 5 minutes ago and I am in love!! It’s currently on display on my stone fireplace’s hearth and it looks like it was made to go there. It’s the perfect addition to our new home in Connecticut. My old barn beam mantle needed an accent piece and the old barn box is perfect!!! I’m completely in love with it and even better knowing that it’s from my home state of Ohio makes it even more special!! It’s an amazing piece, beautiful, and from nature. Thank you Monica Potter Home!!!

  29. Roxanne Voeltz

    I LOVE my Vintage Barn Box. I can’t wait to get creative with it! #310 has a bit of red in it! ☺️

    I ordered my barn wood box before Christmas. It added the perfect rustic touch to my holiday decor. Now it’s on the island in my kitchen holding fruit. It’s beautiful and versatile! Love it.

    From the moment I saw the first barn box introduced by Monica, I loved it! I ordered my first one on 9/22/14….and I’ve ordered 2 more since-along with one we purchased from Southpark Mall at special MP kiosk! My intention was to give 2 as gifts….but I ended up only giving one to friend (I couldn’t help myself). I have one in my master bathroom, another in the powder room on 1st floor, and one in the main living/kitchen area. Coming from the Cleveland, OH area…and still living in NE Ohio today, I APPRECIATE what the barn box represents. I love how it’s made (by an aritsan/carpenter), and where it comes from. The barn box I gave as a gift was also filled with Mrs. Potter products (room spray, lotion, and the whipped soap). I also put a bottle of wine in the box…along with some fun cookies for the family. I will be buying MORE barn boxes to give as gifts for some of my gal pals that I KNOW would love it! My barn box numbers are (on bottom of box): #14, #90, (gift one might have been #89), and #256. There are a lot of fun things you can do with the box! At the same time, I love the simplicity. THANK YOU!!!!

    Using one in the bathroom to put all of the counter products in one place and another in the kitchen for napkins, salt & pepper shakers and the hot sauce that is always on the table. love adding a festive touch each holiday; a great reminder of home.

  33. Greg Wolny

    I purchased the Vintage Barn Box for my wife as a birthday gift. They were sold out online but Jessica was able to have one available for me at their pop up shop and I picked it up in person. Great customer service and my wife loved the gift, thank you!

  34. Becky

    I use my vintage barn box all the time! My favorite use is to throw a tea towel inside and then place fresh baked cookies or muffins in it. The presentation is just awesome! I love that it’s handmade and I love that it’s from Ohio!

  35. Erin waseleski

    I received this from my boys(husband and 2 sons) for Xmas! This is all I wanted!!! I love it! The uniqueness of it is breathtaking. I plan on getting more! One for every room in the house! Got so many compliments on it! Husband also said shipping was very fast and customer support was amazing!

  36. Kate Primo

    I purchased the Vintage Barn Box to give as a gift to my cousin for her 40th birthday. We had her party the day after The Parenthood finale….our favorite show. I filled the barn box with wine! She absolutely loved it.

Family inspired. Thoughtfully made.

When I say Monica Potter Home was inspired by my family, I’m not just talking about my mom, dad, children, and sisters (even though I would be nowhere near where I am without them). But to me, the word “family” also encompasses my wonderful friends, thoughtful neighbors, loyal customers, the City of Cleveland, and of course, YOU. Not to get too mushy, but you inspire me just by being here. Thank you so much for inviting me into your home.

Because that’s where it all started. With home.

Hi, I'm Monica Potter
