Another of my office projects. Cheesy I got this really cool map/document drawer from my FIL. I loved the way it looked, but wasn't sure what to do with it. I finally decided I wanted to hang it on the wall and maybe use it a shelf, but that seemed boring. Then I got the idea to paint it with chalkboard paint. Brilliant!

Here's a closeup of the top with the original handles and label holder:

I like the quirkiness of this. What a great thing to do with an old drawer.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
