Rulers Rulers

The other day I posted a photo from a magazine of a set of drawers with rulers for fronts. It caught my imagination and as I have several wooden ones that I don't use I thought I would have a go.
here is the result
The third drawer down has a plastic slide rule attached and it was either my husband's or my father's but I have never known how to use it.

The set of drawers I used I have had for a long while housing things that I never use, it is now being used for my ribbons (some of them) and buttons (again some of them) I do have another set of drawers that I'll decorate as soon as I find more old rulers and tape measures.
