How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

We bought clear-plastic hanging folder file cases, slightly smaller than the chest interior, and slipped them inside.

Step 2

Cut two layers of 1/4-inch-thick cork (available at office-supply stores) to the size of your lid; affix them with cork glue to create a bulletin board.

Step 3

Use wood glue to attach a strip of molding along each side of the chest, several inches below the lip, to support a tray of office supplies. A cutlery holder may be wide enough, or you can glue together modular wooden craft boxes, and paint or stain them to match the chest.
