Treasure Chest for Josiah

I found a wooden radio box at the GW last fall and though it didn't work for what I imagined it to be, it made a treaure box for grandson Josiah, who turns nine today.
He was delighted to have his own 'treasure chest' to put his finds in!
The front had dial holes in it and I covered it with beadboard and painted the box with HD's Gentle Rain.
I lined the inside with recycled quilted lining.
 Tacked the origional radio emblem on the lid.
 And glued burlap on the back to hide the holes.
Happy birthday, Josiah!
