Letter rack makeover

I found this bargain retro letter rack on eBay and couldn't wait for it to arrive home to put all my letters in. I mean of course real letters, with stamps on. Not the depressing utility bill and statement kind, they are kept where they deserve to be hidden in a draw.

When the letter rack came though it looked really sad and unloved and in desperate need of brightening up. So I spray painted the the metal part of the rack and replaced the fabric. The fabric I got free in a craft kit with a craft magazine I regularly buy (thank you Homemaker Magazine). So apart from the cost of the pink spray paint, which I plan on getting a lot of use out of, it cost me nothing to upcycle. 

Here it is, a not at all sad looking letter rack.
