Today I finished up the mail organizer. I came across this nice mirror & mail organizer a couple weeks back (remember this post?), it was a little beat up. I wanted to add color since I've been on this teal kick, and hopefully someday my kitchen will be wonderful teals & lime greens (add that to huge to-do list...). Here she is:
What do you think? Rather than trying to disguise the fact that this piece has been used a lot, I just went with it. A quick tape job and a few coats of paint later, I got my teal stripe! I replaced the hardware and beat the paint job up just enough to match, and here we go! Here is how it was before, not a huge change:
On another note, I found these cool boxes on the side of the road (in a puddle! In the rain!!) and had to rescue them. Here is one, but I have two identical ones:
They've been totally bleached out by the sun, I think they were in someone's backyard for a while. Anyway, I think i'll rub a little color on the front here & there to compliment the yellow, and then I am on the prowl for the perfect jar, as I'm going to make this my spice rack. There are 24 slots per box, so having 2 boxes, I should have a collection of 48 spice jars when this is done... I hope it's enough! haha. Have a great day!
