Number Painted Vintage Bill and Letter Organizer

As promised, I finally found an item in my phone that I painted to put in our booth... 
Anybody recognize it?  

I saw them all the time when I was a kid... it's an old "Bill Letter Misc" organizer stand with three metal key ring holders at the bottom. It can also be hung on the wall.

No, I didn't take a 'before' pic but here's one just like it, listed on Etsy, minus the 3 metal key holders:
I just love it!

Most of the gold (gilded?) lettering was gone from mine but I could still feel the letters, so I sanded it down.

She makes some of the coolest stuff ever!!
I doubt there's anybody who HASN'T been to her blog, 
but just in case, hop over and check out her stuff at 

Happy Thursday, Y'all!

  4. I love this JoAnn! I think painting it really transforms it and makes it more "today". I finally followed you by email so I wouldn't miss your posts.. I seem to always be behind, but now you'll be in MY mailbox :) that seems to be the only way I can keep up lately.

  5. I also remember these mail/letter holders. Very pretty how you re-did that one. It looks so pretty :)
