    I am a carmaker so it would probably fit my ink pads nicely!

    It looks like the horizontal dividers do not reach to the back of the box. Maybe you could use to to hang/display jewelry ?

    If you can cut or remove some of the horizontal shelves but leave others, you could turn it into a faux printers tray and use it for a display shelf.

    I saw a glass topped coffee table made from this. They kept the vintage tapes in it as well. They used an old coffee table to repurpose.

    I would take some wood scraps and create a 45 degree lean-to on the back and remove a few slats to make a sewing thread organizer, even leave a few without taking some slats out to organize bobbins - hope this is a good idea. You need to make that 45 degree lean-to in order for the bobbins and thread to stay in the unit otherwise they would fall out.

    Or............. get a piece of Plexiglas or regular glass cut to fit over the dividers, since the dividers are set back, just enough as a matter of fact to fit that Plexiglas or glass in, then put handles on the side to make a beautiful service tray ( bed side tray )

    Lots of ideas come to mind....it all depends on what your style is ;-) My first thought is to stain it a little darker and mount it to the wall and just use it for a textural element in your room. You could also get (or make) some small letters to place in the openings here and there and spell out a word...or just get random letters ;-) It would look like a wood printer type press drawer as shown. You might even be able to remove a few of the dividers to change out the size of the openings. Get a drawer pull to add to the top and you've got a pretty good "knock off". :-)

    my husband collects Matchbox cars. We took out every other slat and framed it with a picture frame hinged on one side so it could be opened and dust free. Several on one wall made it look really nice

    I removed the insides. Filled in any holes. Added two handles. And it becomes a tray. Used old spoons for the handles. Bent them drilled two small holes in each and attached with screws. Either paint or stain and can add stencil or wallpaper to bottom. This can also be hung on wall

    Use it to store small plastic boxes, altoid tins, tic tacs, whatever fits, and use for bead storage.

    Hi, If you can remove the back add an outside garden picture of plants with the right dimensions as if you are looking out of a closed shuttered window. Add the front back on Or even an animal peering in. Such a choice of different pics of outside scenes you could use all depending on your own personality Good luck x
