Upcycled Organizers

Yesterday I posted all about the new found cleanliness of my computer area.. Mr. Pinkapotamus was THRILLED to say the very least!  Now he can actually find all of his things that he needs for the day without having to search!  Hip Hip Hooray!  I also showed a picture of the organizers that I was using.. here is a pic to jog your memory!
BORING!  Right?
Not to mention the fact that they DON'T match the kitchen.  So here is what I did to take them from kitchen crappy to kitchen HAPPY!

From this ..

To this.. but it was too plain.. sooo I added a little more!

And then to complete the look and add that girly element..

And then the crappy coffee can pencil holder became this!

And then this!
So here is the completed set!

Fancy, right?  Not to mention neat and organized.
The whole project cost me.. nothing, nada, zero, zilch!  I either had the items on hand or they were given to me.  Hooray! 
Hope you have a wonderful day!
