With my husband deploying next week I am attempting to become more organized. With that said I purchased boxes for my boys to put their school papers in on my desk, instead of just tossed on the kitchen table to be lost for forever. I also purchased a white tray. The color didn't do much for me since it was going by the front door, so I decided to jazz it up a bit. Blend in with the decor. I Mod Podged the outside with scrapbook paper that I had in my scrap bin. Then painted the inside and antiqued the outside of the tray a bit. All the stuff I had already so my only cost was the $6 tray from Walmart. You always have to remind yourself that things can be altered. If something catches your eye, but you don't like the 'look' of it per-say, then alter it. Don't be afraid to alter. The inside of my box didn't quite come out the way I hoped, but hey, mail is going in it anyways so I can live with it. Happy altering.
