A few weeks back I bought a old mailbox at a garage sale. Shortly thereafter, I found some galvanized buckets in the dollar section at Target. I love buckets of all sizes so I bought a whole stack of them. The combination of the mailbox and two buckets resulted in a super cute wall organizer.
I outlined the word "mail" on the box with a chalk pen so it would stand out better. It will hold my waiting to be sorted mail just perfectly.
The buckets were brightened up with a bit of ribbon and some black lettering. They are just the right size for the ever needed, always missing, paper and pens.
And there you have it, fifteen minutes and $5 can go along way for cuteness and function.
