I recently donated a few bags of unwanted belongings to a thrift store, and while I was there I found this napkin holder for 50 cents. It didn't look too hot, but I knew it had potential. It was originally red and yellow. I repainted it neon pink and lime green.
I first painted the entire holder white. I didn't bother with sanding.... Then I painted it with the neon paint from Michael's. The paint was only $0.33 a bottle. The pink paint was so thin, it took 4 coats. I then painted all my details. I had to mix my greens from my stash to get a color I wanted.
It might actually be a mail holder, I'm not sure. But it gets the job done.
