When I was cleaning my shop I found the last of these leather bill wallets so have been painting them up for sale. I use mine to keep my "stash" money separated from the household money in my "regular wallet". It has 3 zippered compartments so I use one for bills, another for coupons, and the last one has a list of items I am looking for....for garage/estate sales.
I was nearly out of my FA Enamel paints which I normally use so I purchased the new Enamel paints by DecoArt and the "painting verdict" is still out on these paints. They are not as thick as the Folk Art brand which I loved, but paint up the same and have the semi gloss look which is great.
