Desk Organizer Makeover

I went to Savers today and found this shabby plain desk organizer.  I was in the market for one, so I thought about it and decided to give it a makeover.  I got it for $3.99.  Then I went to Michael's and got some sky blue paint for 1.19.  Then I got some stickers from K&C Company that were fake hardware stickers.  They work great and look like the real thing.  I also got a sponge brush for .39.  Total cost: under $6.00 with tax.

Here it is all laid out on an extra piece of cardboard from an Ikea box.  First I sanded everything I could get to.

Then I painted it with 2 coats of the sky blue paint.  After it dried, I put on the hardware stickers.  They look great and are actually pretty sturdy.

Then I made labels to fit inside of the stickers by hand stamping them.  I really like how it looks with my milk glass planter.  ICE BLUE is my new favorite color...

What do you think?  I found other desk organizers that were remotely stylish for over $25.00.  I would say this is a SUCCESS!
