Met Monday & Mosaic Monday 6-1-09

Thank you Susan for hosting Met Monday... 
See all the other fun Met Monday posts by going to

So this week its a very simple
presto change-o project.
I metamorphosed a letter holder 
into a hair products holder!
I bought this blue letter holder at Ross
for this ridiculous price:


Decided it was a bit too bright blue for me...

So I took a rag and some glaze and 
in 10 minutes the letter holder fit my style.

Only I'm not using it as a letter holder... 
It hangs in my bathroom for things I need on hand.


I am also participating in 
Mosaic Monday this week... 
I LOVE Photo mosaics!
This is hosted by 
VIsit Mary's blog for the other mosaics. 
They are incredible!
Here is my contribution
Its called:
Toes in the Sand

Thank you for visiting 
The Project Table!

  2. Oh I love that letter holder re-use idea! Fabulous! And what a great sandy mosaic!!

  3. The blues are beautiful...and the mosaic made me smile, what great photos!

  4. I love your beach pictures and the condo, it looks like you had some fun! Mary @ Boogieboard Cottage :O)

  5. Love the change in the color and what a creative use of a letter holder. It's perfect in the bathroom. Just lovely. Hugs, Marty

  6. Fun mosaic :) I loved what you did to the letter holder. Great idea, came out so nice!

  7. Hi Rainey, what a great idea and I much prefer the letter holder the way you used it and how you changed it. Love your mosaic, is there anything better than walking in the sand barefooted :-), happy Monday, Kathy.

  8. Great idea on the letter holder, far more functional now. Love the color!...Christine

  9. what a great use for a letter holder and like the makeover on it, i absolutely adore your mosaic picture.

  10. Now that is a great Before and After. I love it! And I loved your cute, cute, cute. Those pics would be so cute framed and hanging somewhere. Thx for sharing!

  11. Now aren't you the smartest one! I love this! You'll probably get more use out of it like this than a mail holder! Love the change of color too!
    be a sweetie,
    Shelai ;0

  12. Great idea - love what you did to the letter holder.

  13. Great transformation- amazing what a little stain or glaze can do! Your mosiac is the cutest one today! ~ Robyn

  14. fun day at the beach.. water, sand and sun! bliss! great mosaic

  15. Oh, I just love getting my toes in the sand!! Great mosaic!!


  16. We really liked what you did to the letter box.Great idea:)Great sandy mosaic.

  17. All of my projects nag at me to finish them up. What a great idea for posting your's...almost like keeping one accountable to finish them; although, I tried that too and I still have a bedroom wall upstairs with an unfinished castle on it :(

    Oh well...maybe by the time I can finish it up, the boys will have already painted over it (probably not). My oldest is the treasure keeper in the family...he probably will never want it painted over :o).

    Now..enough of my rambling!! I loved your comment on my mosaic post today; bringing a tear to my eye (yeah...I can be a happy emotional often).

    I love your mosaic!!!! And how you've shared your project. I am going to link to you on my photos blog today!

    Love and blessings to you (oh, and your screen name makes me smile...)

  18. Great use for that letter holder. So clever.

  19. cannot think of a better place for toes ~ mosaics is so refreshing this week!

  20. I love that and it fits your hair products so perfectly and I love the glaze on it.
