Knife Set

We got this knife set as a wedding gift & the knives are starting to get rather dull & rusty.
During the move, I decided I was going to toss it out & open up another knife set that we got as a wedding gift...that has been sitting unopened for the past 5 years.
Last minute, I grabbed this set & brought it with us, thinking I might be able to use them still???
Well...there are only 3 knives left(worth using) & there happens to be 5 extra slots for knives in the new set I opened!
Perfect.
Now I don't need this old, ugly one...
but maybe I can use it for something else???

I have plans to drill out this whole section, but because I don't have a big enough drill bit right now...
I'm just going to cover it up with some scrapbook paper for now:)

I coated it with white spray paint & turned it upside & traced out the top onto some scrapbook paper...
Decopauged the paper on the top &
And turned it into the perfect solution to hold my crafting supplies!
It will look just perfect on my red desk:)
