Anways, I thought a letter/bill organizer type thing would help a lot.
I ran across this one at a thrift store recently for 2.00. Yep, I snagged her up.
She's pretty drab and beat up. She definitely needs some loving but I had a vision - a makeover that would make her fit in with my red and teal kitchen.
First, I gave her a bath by cleaning her off really well with a damp towel. Then I primed her. Next I decided to dress her in Krylon's Banner Red. She needed a couple of coats until she was fully covered.
She was all dolled up in Banner Red but she needed some accessories.
I had some scrapbooking paper in my stash that I thought would go great so I got it out, measured for each of the slots, and cut my paper. I decided to use one printed side and one plain side. I just mod podged those on.
She was looking really nice at this point but I decided to add one more thing. I sprayed a small wooden S (from Hobby Lobby) with Banner Red and then hot glued it on. And here's what she looks like now!
So much better and I might not even mind (ok, that's stretching it too far) bills now since there is a pretty place to put them!
