Drab to Fab: Mail Slot Makeover
Clutter is a MAJOR problem in our foyer. Shoes, bags, papers and mail. Oy, the mail!
For months, I was looking for an effective mail solution – something that would neatly organize our mail while it sat for us to read. After re-doing our foyer, I needed a solution STAT – the mail pile was starting to turn into an accessory and it wasn’t my idea of beautiful decor.
If you follow me on Pinterest, you would have noticed a number of pins for mail organization. Lots of ideas, but nothing that I could easily and quickly execute. Then, one day while strolling through my local VV Boutique, I came across this beauty.
Gotta love that honey-coloured wood. Best of all, the price at a whopping $2.99. Yup, sold. This baby was coming home with me.
I had a few ideas of what to do with this mail slot, but opted to keep it simple. Black is the accent colour of our foyer, so I grabbed my can of Rust-Oleum Specialty Chalk Board Spray and went to town.
And, here’s the final product…
Plenty of space for our mail and it’s located right by the front door near the coat rack for easy access.
What’s the ribbon board next to it? More on that tomorrow!
