There was no silverware inside, only the mint green lining.
I took off all the hardware and sanded it all down with 120 grit sandpaper, and pulled out the lining.
I then painted it with a lime green paint. I'm having my workspace have a little pop of color!! i didn't use a primer only because I wanted the wood grain to show through.
Here is the finished tool box. I have all my drill bits, paddle bits and other goodies.
