Mail / Stationary Organiser


Hi Everyone,

I did this little makeover ages ago so its about time I shared it with you.

I only remembered to take a before picture once I started to paint, so forgive the lack of a good "before"

I have had this little stationary/mail organiser for years. 

I thought the dolphins were a little dated and I was looking for a little project to do, as I had some paper scraps I wanted to use up.


I painted the wooden organiser white and covered the surfaces with different but slightly coordinating papers. I think I did about 3 layers of modge and a coat of satin varnish.


I was going to use it as a spot to stack the bills and incoming mail...


Sean decided on a more manly use for it......



Quite sweet, don't you think?


Till next time, take care

  1. Love it! I love how you mixed the patterned paper and didn't make it all a solid pattern. I should make one to hold the remotes- we have a universal remote yet my husband insists on keeping the other 3 on the coffee table too! :) I hope you'll stop by and link up: http://www.serendipityandspice.com/2012/03/manic-monday-linky-party-9.html

  7. I have a mail organizer that I don't like the design on and have been contemplating what to do with it. Love your idea. So much nicer and more interesting than just painting!
