{ Before & After }

I bought this cute little item at a local but very "short lived" craft store that we had here in our town. 
(crafts stores around here seem to have a shelf life like a gallon of milk, they never last long)
I love that I can keep some of my small stuff organized but still within the kids reach & the items inside change all the time.
 It's one of the things that's allowed on the counter top in my kitchen along side my toaster and sugar/flour containers. 
I loved it when I bought it but hated the "wood look" yes I'm a paint lover, not so much with the stain.
So I gave her a quickie makeover by painting it white and sanding down the edges. I need to go back and do a little more sanding but I have to say that  I love it so much more now that's she's all pretty & white.
I am so glad to finally check this project off my mile long list of things to do!!  
Do you have a quick makeover project that you are working on?
