    What a coincidence! I am working on one right now that I am making into a lap desk. Not for a laptop, but for crafts, writing, etc. I tore all of the old felt out and am trying to think of how to divide up the storage space inside. For the top,I'd like to make a leather writing surface, maybe stamp it with some gold leaf in a vintage look. I'd like to attach a handle that'd let me carry it like a small suitcase, but the storage has to be able to take the tilt without spilling, haha!

    Great ideas above! I, too, happen to have just bought a second silverware box and will figure out what to do with it soon. I did transform one last year, though. Here it is...

    Here are photos of three silverware boxes that I have repainted. I use them for jewellery, TV remote controls, doggie bags (clean ones - that is). They are just so handy to have around and can be decorated in so many ways.
