What is this?


I love shopping.
I love shopping at Goodwill.
Sometimes Lots of times I buy things 
and I don't even know what they are.


Maybe you're thinking ~
why, that's a magazine rack!


Not a magazine rack ~
unless there are miniature magazines.

I showed the paint can to
give you an idea of its dimensions.

Then I painted it.
Of course.


I haven't mastered any distressing techniques.
I just shoot and spray and let the paint fall where it may.


Then I found these napkins that were a perfect fit.

Any other ideas of how I could use this?

Love it, I think it's a napkin holder too, but maybe for remote controls? You know guys, they can put the remote control in it and call it a caddie......hurry and put a big bow on it so no guys snatch it up!!! lol

Ha...you made me laugh. For sure that's a magazine rack...not! Napkins are perfect for it. It could also be used as an organizer on a desk to hold smaller items and papers.

My Grandpa Dillon had one of these and used it for his remote controls, right beside his recliner. I think he'd made his himself in the shop, so it was an official remote control holder.

Well, it works great as a napkin holder! Love the new yellow paint!!!
Maybe it's a mail sorter?

I also thought it might be for napkins...but I like the idea for office organization. Is it big enough to hold mail? (Think in-coming/need to sort & outgoing/need to mail.)

Cute color, by the way!

I also thought about remotes. It would be a pretty way to store bills to be paid or mail that needs to be sent out. I like the pretty napkins you found to use in it.
