Soo..

I had this empty Splenda box and too many boxes of tea.  So what did I do?  I cut a side off the box, taped it up, painted and painted until it didn't say Splenda, stenciled it to match my kitchen, and stacked some tea in it.  For the simplicity, I love it.   Grin

You can see the tape in a few spots, but I still love it.  The letters are just plain 'ol stickers that I painted green.  Waay too easy.

Thanks!  My boy thought I was crazy before I had painted the whole thing.  "...why are you cutting up a splenda box?".  They'll never understand.   Roll Eyes

Yay, I'm glad I inspired somebody!  It's the PERFECT size for three rows of tea.  What I did was I took the cardboard separators from my other boxes of tea (they were Lipton that had them) and cut them down for the length of the splenda box just to keep it organized.
