Your Before and After

Here's a Before and After of a napkin/mail holder that I posted about on my blog not too long ago. I asked readers to tell me what to do with it and received a lot of great ideas. Here's the one I used...

I painted it a light blue/turquoise color, then a light coat of white and distressed it. I really like how it turned out! What do you think?


  1. That's something I have to remember...the two-tone is great look. I love it on dressers but always think I don't have time, when all it is is just another coat of paint! And, it may save me a coat in the end anyway because of the contrasting color you wouldn't notice the coverage isn't perfect. Brilliant!

  2. Something so simple but SO GREAT!
    I have a a great story you should cover on this blog. What would be the best way of contacting you directly?
