Napkin Holder – Retro Style

napkin-holder-retro-style

Hi!  Do you remember how the restaurants used to have a metal napkin holder on the tables?  They were metal and the housed small napkins that pulled out one by one.  They are different and more modern now.

Well I found one of the old napkin holders at the Goodwill and purchased it for $2.

Of course this napkin holder didn’t start out this way!  Ha!  You know me better than that right?

This is one of my bi-monthly contributor posts that I write for Life With Lorelai!  I am showing the beginning and the end products but to see how I achieved these results I would love for you to hop over to her blog and read the entire process.

Here is what it looked like to begin with!

I think it had seen better days.  It definitely had rusty and dirty areas.  A good cleaning goes a long way!

But in the end, I think it turned out pretty cute.  What do you think?

    I have a huge crush on all things retro like your napkin holder so excuse me while I drool. This would be so fun to use every day.
