    I got this metal set of drawers off eBay. It's about 1 foot square and 8" high. There was a bit of chipped paint and rust that I wanted to cover up on the outside, and I wanted to add some dividers to a couple of drawers. Finally, I added felt to the bottom to minimize scratches.

    The case is painted here, the drawers are not.

    Very Nice :thumbsup:
    And congrats on getting that coral Doxa you were pursuing. How come there seems to be a 1920s ladies watch in there? That seems quite out of your usual focus. :)

    1926 Hamilton "Milady's Watch of Accuracy", yes that's the name in the dealer catalog. I picked it up because I wanted a larger dress watch for a wedding about a year ago that I'd was travelling to and wanted something I'd be ok if I lost it. 986A movement, 25 year signed Hamilton white gold filled case. Same movement that was used in Hamilton's popular cushion and barrel cased men's wrist watches, so fits within my theme of ladies watches with non-nerfed specs compared to the men's version. :D

    That’s a nice find and repurposing. And perfect vintage patina. :thumbsup:
