Mail Organizer Face Lift

I had this grand idea to get my family more organized... mostly in the morning because it has been such a production to get everyone dressed, fed, packed and out the door. One day last week I left my coffee and the next day I left my purse... seemed like things were going bad to worse. So, as part of my plan I needed to find a spot for all the what-nots we tend to lay around... like keys and cell phones. This old thing was in my scrapbook room full of old cards (why oh why can't I throw a card away?) So I painted it brown and added some paper with good ole Modge Podge... not too shabby huh?

  1. Hope this helps. You have had this piece along time. I understand it is hard to teach an old dog new tricks :).

  2. What a great way to add a little pop of color to your mail organizer. The sky is the limit on the different ways modge podge can be used.

  3. good idea. it will take a while to get into the habit of putting your things in the organizer but it will work. i have a spot for everything i need to take with me and i rarely forget anything. of course, i dont have 2 little ones, but i'm just saying...
