Bill Holder Makeover!

We have this bill holder that we love! We have it hanging in our kitchen and it helps us so much when it comes to staying organized. It is a hand-me-down from my wonderful mom, so needless to say, It has been well loved.

I'm about to turn it into, This. . .
Here is the original . . .
Well loved and ready for a makeover!

A good sanding, a couple coats of paint, and some paper fitting and cutting later. . .

The final product!
I used the Mod Podge to glue and seal the paper onto the front of it. It only took a few coats.

I L-O-V-E the way it turned out! Ant this fits my style and decor more than the fruit did. And this cost me nothing. . . I already had the supplies. Now that's my kind of project!

Much better, although it wasn't horrible to begin with. Great job.

Adorable colors, to die for polka dots, and a great functional piece - just about perfect I would say!

Paint and scrapbook papers can make for great makeovers, as this project exhibits! I wish I could stay organized enough to use something like this. LOL My desk is a jumble! hmmm.... did I pay my light bill this month?!

Oh it's so cute now, I love it! I've seen old ugly ones before and now I'm inspired to give one a makeover for my soon-to-be new office space!

so cute and such a savings. I was looking for a bill holder for the wall a while back... they are not cheap. Great makeover!
