Fixing a fathers day gift

So  a while back my man got the idea to get a vintage first aid kit for the front hallway to store keys.  I thought perfect fathers day gift.  After dealing with someone really annoying on Etsy, I ended up settling on one that I didn't think was so great.  I was right, he didn't like it, it wasn't even vintage.  Oops.  So I decided to try and revive it.  I forgot to take a before picture, but it looked much like the following:



I spread paint stripper all over, let it set and scrubbed away.  I had to use Brasso to scrub off all the rust.  I bought cheapo stencils from staples and used old paint, then a gloss protector.
