What do you think it is and what would you do with it?

A few months ago a friend asked me if I wanted this.

It was free.
She got it from a garage sale, 
but never got around to use it.
She finally decided to just burn it,
but checked with me first to see if I wanted it.

Truthfully I have no idea of what this was used for.
Maybe it was a library cards' holder? 
Maybe it used to hold collectible items?
The openings are about 4"x6"

what would you do with this?
It's heavy.
Overall measures approximately 3'x4'

Stay Frugal,

make sure you use dried herbs that are still "fresh".
You would not believe how amazing this mix smells.
The herbs and red peppers are hang to dry in the sun.

but I believe that what is an eyesore for some, 
can be updated for very little money and time.
You have probably have heard of painted paneling,
but here are some tips, ideas and projects to turn paneling into something beautiful.

Let's start with our main bathroom.

This paneling was the "old" kind, 
somewhat glossy.
I washed it with water (you won't believe how dusty walls can get...paneling or drywall alike).
Then I used a
