Recycled engineers box

My OH was given this lovely old engineers box which he didn't have space for, so whilst I'm off work I thought I would spruce it up and find a new home for it in my craft room. After sanding it all down and oiling it, I cleaned out all the drawers and have recycled it as ink storage. Sorry pictures are a little dark. x
