Cosmo Cricket Altered File Box

In an attempt to control paper clutter and mail clutter on our kitchen counter, I bought this box:
We keep random papers, mail, bills to be paid, stuff to be filed, receipts, etc. in it, all nice and organized! It has sat on our kitchen counter just like that for MONTHS! I finally had a chance to alter it recently.
This is the end result. This is the front. I actually had made the yellow piece before Christmas for my bazaar. It was a magnet board. It didn't sell and I liked it so I kept it, even though I had no place to hang it. It worked perfect!
I added another little magnet board to the side that shows.
I opted for super simple magnets as the papers make the file box busy enough.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Wow! You did a great job with that! SO SMART to add the metal piece with magnets. Can't you enter this over at TPV this week?

And why shouldn't our file boxes be bright and cheerful like this? I love it!
