Rock N Roll Redux :: Upcycled Key/Mail Dish

We all have areas in our home that become catch alls for mail, keys, coupons and other miscellaneous items.  I decided give these things a specified home by my front door so that we could easily find car keys, coupons, and recent mail.

I was digging through our work shed area and found this old holiday plate....


It's plastic, fairly large and has been sitting in a box for over four years.  I decided to upcycle it and give it a new life as my key/mail dish.  Now it looks like this...


First I used Krylon metallic silver spray paint to paint the outside edges and underneath part of the plate. Then I used some faux leather table cloth material to line the inside of the plate.  

It came out really great, and it fits perfectly on this table that I recently repainted.  Now our keys and mail don't have to be sprawled out all over the kitchen table!
