Wooden Mail Organizer

I bought this from TJ Maxx or Marshalls a couple of years ago, before I was even engaged to be married. I fell in love when I saw it. I was so tempted to buy each matching piece. I absolutely LOVED the color, but found when I got married that it really didn't suit our home. It's kind of a minty green.

So I spray painted it red (Cherry Red in gloss by Red Devil - Big Lots)! My husband REALLY loves it and so do I! It matches our decor perfectly and sits on the kitchen counter to hold our mail. I will eventually go back and distress it, but for now I'm just enjoying the color and usefulness of it!


Of course, if I ever wanted to change it back or to a different color, all I have to do is paint it!

Thank you, Carrie! It is actually spray painted the color, Cherry Red in gloss by Red Devil. I got this can at Big Lots, but I'm sure most brands will have this same color. Thanks for asking, I'll have to add it to my post :D
