They are a bit battered on the outside, they will look better after a good going over with boot polish.
And made a handle - very Make Do And Mend! Real Wartime stuff!
I lined the inside with some pretty flowery paper (scented drawer liners - I picked up cheap - from guess where!). I gave it all a good going over with PVA glue - its still wet in the pic.
Feel a project comming on!
I had to call into the hardware shop before I came home, just to pick up some firelighters (sometimes the wood is a bit wet - needs a bit of help!) - and spotted these!
