Work Bench makeover number one

You may remember this was my favourite of the work benches we recently got. I have had fun bringing it back to life and transforming it into an interesting industrial piece of furniture.
 Before shots

We removed all the handles as they were miss matched and some were a bit worse for wear, and we sanded all the drawers.
We also sanded the top.
 Here it is at the WAC all restored. I painted the metal base black, estapoled the top and Kristen gave the drawers and the top a wax and added the new, old, matching handles.
We also added a shelf on the side.
I love old rustic timber like this particularly after it has had a good wax and is lovely and soft.
I think it would be great in a kitchen.
