A Mail Solution

No, not a “male” solution.  Although that would be nice, too… ;-)Our mail has always been an issue – we never have a proper place for it, and important mail always seems to get misplaced or forgotten.  My husband saw this idea in a magazine, and shortly after, I saw the idea on Pinterest.

We just happened to have some old “saloon doors” from our kitchen that were disregarded pretty much as soon as we bought the house.  I touched these up with some new white paint, and distressed them with sandpaper and glaze.  I sprayed them with some clear polycrylic and voila!  A mail system that seems to be working quite well.

Our entry area isn’t quite done, but I’m happy with it for the moment :-)

Thanks to the Pinterest Challenge for spurring me on!

    Look! It showed up in my feed! YAY!

    Seriously cute idea! I could see this by my computer desk, too. Maybe a window picture frame or bulletin board with shutters for holding mail on each side. Hmmm…

      Hmm… I believe my mom found that for me, and knowing her, it was probably at a yard sale! I always had plans to paint it, but then it ended up fitting in just fine the way it was :)
