Found it!

Yesterday I shared all of your comments to my before and after “country style mail holder”…….

I had decided I needed to come up with something to make that mail holder “my style”….

Becky made this comment to yesterdays post that stuck with me………

I say don’t jump on the band wagon if it doesn’t fit your decor! Stick with what YOU LIKE. It will always be the right choice. Becky

And I have to say…………

She is right! Is she Confucius or something!!! She is so smart! Becky….what is the meaning of life? How do you raise perfect children? Do criss-cross t-shirts hide muffin tops on low rise jeans? Will slimming one pieces push all my fat out the leg and arm holes? I have more issues! I need more answers!

Her comment challenged me to not copy another style but make it my style.

First….I had taken this……….

 And re-cycled it into what might look good in someone else’s home…..or someones goodwill bag : )
 

And totally missed my style.

But since Confucius stopped by……

I made it mine.

I’m wondering what you will think………..

Ta Daaaaaa!

Do you like it? I really do!

I painted the wire part nickel….the little pegs nickel…the rest a black satin…..
And only used spray paint. 
I used a little stencil for the monogram and spray painted the “S” with nickel as well.
Was that the most awful tutorial ever?

It’s the “KISS” method tutorial…. (keep it simple stupid) 
So I know there are more of you out there that may not get my humor : )

But anyways……

It now lives here…….where my pear pictures used to live, that now reside in my dining room.

LOVE it!

My fear was that it would look cluttered with mail in it………

Crazy me…..it’s ok with mail in it!

I also took this basket…..

We got it at a yard sale for 50 cents this past Saturday….I was in a frenzy by this time with inspiration dripping out of every pore and ripped out the yellow fabric and placed it in my workshop/professional paint station……

I know….don’t be jealous….we all can’t have workrooms/professional paint stations. 
You will get there one day kids……baby steps…..

But now it’s living right next door to my mail holder.

Awwwwww…….I love them both!

What do you guys think now?

Think I found my style?

Love,

Me
