    Is it the metal kind or wooden kind? I've seen several ideas on Pinterest. You could add partitions inside and convert it to store other things like tools, or maybe a first aid kit.

    My dad sanded, stained and varnished some wooden ammo boxes. added shelves inside and a white ceramic knob outside. it hangs vertically over our toilet for TP, etc. It's lovely!

    Ammo box sounds fitting for bathroom toilet paper holdings.

    I have seen so many of these repurposed as a shelf! Just add sawtooth hangars to the back and hang it on your wall!

    There are two unique ideas. One is to turn it into a coffee table. Simply paint portions and sand others. Add large wheels on it. Have one in m y living room and love it. Another ideas is to turn it on it's side with top opening from the top and make it into a bar. You can put it on top of an old iron table base or just a narrow table. Add wine glass shelves inside. These are selling for over $200 in shops. Good luck!

      I assume you text. If so, send me your phone number and I can text you a picture of my coffee table. I saw the bar idea on Flea Market Flip a few weeks ago, so do not have a picture of it.

    Do not need phone number. Go on Pinterest and in search engine type Ammunition Box. You won't believe all the ideas!
