I love finding utilitarian items that have been used in restaurants or other facilities and updating them for a practical use in my own home. A while ago, I added a tissue holder to my kids’ bathroom and now I have a fun painted napkin dispenser for all of our summer entertaining!
I bought this retired napkin dispenser at ReStore for $8. I loved the idea of using it to hold napkins when we’re entertaining outside. No more napkins blowing away or napkins being held down by rocks.
I taped off the front metal part of the dispenser and spray painted the rest of it orange …
… then added some fun vinyl lettering to encourage the kiddos.
Filled with patterned napkins …
… it’ll be such a fun accessory for all of our summer entertaining!
