This is what it looked like before.
It had been painted over, the lock did not work, and, it wasn't, me.
I removed the top, and, used wood filler for the holes.
The handle is a metal piece I've had lying around for some time. It was originally attached to a broken glass serving dish. I believe it was in the free box at a garage sale. I loved the ornate details, and, knew I'd find a use for it eventually.
After attaching the handle, I gave the entire piece a layered, grey, and, white, finish.
I made the metal "Paris" tag for the front.
Much better, don't you think?
