I have this funky box with 6 drawers that I want to redecorate but I can`t think of a theme. Any ideas on on what this box could be used for? Thanks.

First thing I thought of was a cake....could you make it look like a birthday or wedding cake.

The first thing I thought of was Steampunk.

I thought it reminded me of a movie reel.

Pizza! I think the box is very unique. I love it. Pizza. Pie. Cake. Movie reel. All are great suggestions. Please post what you decide to do with it.

It could also be a car theme..it reminds me of some hubcaps.

as far as use... I do not know what you like to do, but I would put cotton balls, cotton swabs, doubters, make-up sponges and other paint type items in there

I vote for doing it up Steampunk style. I think that all of the suggestions are great and all would make a great box, but I would love to see this with embellishments inside done up like a Steampunk gear or something.

My question is where do you want it eventually and what use do u have in mind for it. I can see it in my scrapping room storing supplies, buttons, flowers, brads, whatever. I can see it in the office for storing paper clips, push pins, rubberbands. I can see it in my bedroom storing earrings,necklaces,rings. It would be great in a game room holding dice,chips,change. All kinds of uses.

Thank you for all the suggestions! And the bumps too. I`m not sure which idea I`ll use. I have always wanted to try steampunk but that is way out of my league, I wouldn`t know where to begin.

I do own model horses that have saddles and other tack. Do you think this box could pass for a wagon wheel?

I definitely think it could be a wagon wheel!! For decorations, you could include some leather looking rosettes like you see on some western saddles.

I'm sure there will be a lot more ideas coming and I cannot wait to see your finished product!

Oh get some kraft paper grunge it up with distressing ink and make rosettes for it I think that would be cool to add to a wagon wheel! I can't wait to see what you do with it.
