Each night, the Mr. comes home and sets his keys, sunglasses, and wallet down...in separate places. And every morning, we play a game of who can round up all of his stuff. Then, I came across this genius idea from the DIY Showoff that I showed you here. Time to shop! I had the mister snap this pic while I skipped out of the store with my new treasures!
Go figure, I end up at Target. And with
slightly much more than just a 3-part tray, but I did scoop this baby up for just $10!
Then, I used some stickers I got from Hobby Lobby (on clearance, duh) to label each compartment. I applied a light coat of Mod Podge to seal the letters. Then, I gave it one more coat with a clear gloss so it won't be damaged if it gets wet. Like this perhaps:
Miss B was VERY anxious for me to finish my project so we could play. Here she is, waiting patiently.
I figured I could go ahead and put my new addition to good use!
And there you have it--the keeper of all things. Let's break it down now:
- 3-part ceramic tray: $10 from Tar-jay
- Letter stickers: $2 on clearance from Hobby Lobby
- Mod Podge: on-hand, free
- Clear Acrylic Sealer: $5 from Walmart
- Paintbrush: on-hand, free
Super, SUPER easy and again, another shout out to The DIY Showoff! If you haven't checked her out, you should hop on over and see her and all of her DIY goodness! Now, if only I could find the perfect entryway table. Have a great day!!
