Yes, I’ve been quite MIA but lets not focus on the negative and get on with the goodness.
I have to say if I were a superhero, my nemesis would be paper clutter and more specifically mail!
I can see the outfit now, I’m thinking something in pink with a letter opener on it and lightening, yes lightening would make it very “official”. Maybe some ruffles?
Ok ok, back on track.
I hate when my entry console looks like this
You caught me, that isn’t really MY entry console. I’m all about being “real” but it gave me hives to think about posting my mess for all to see.
Something had to be done to contain the evil genius that is mail clutter………I’m pretty sure my mail carrier is a sidekick of some sort. So I broke out my big boy power tools and built my secret weapon.
I added not only the holders for mail but clips and space for either important reminders or a calendar.
I’m pretty happy with it, especially considering it’s the first thing I’ve really built completely from scratch and had no directions what.so.ever.
Not to mention the total cost to me for this project was about $5, I don’t think you’d be able to get away with that at Pottery Barn or Ballard Designs!
Now to try and actually get the HB to remember to use it.
