Industrial Box Makeovers, and Shopping

I wasn't sure what I was going to do with these metal and wood industrial boxes when I found them.



I liked the size, but wanted a different look.



A good cleaning, a little oxidation I created, a paper label, and I was very happy.



I treated the inside too.



Loving them.  Wish I had a dozen more.  Hmmmm, maybe I'll make some......somehow.







Did some shopping today, and I'm very happy with my finds.  Here's a peek at one of a pair of pieces I brought home.
