I don't know about you, but I seem to have one area in my kitchen that is a "catch-all" for a lot of junk. It is mostly mail junk, but it still seems to accumulate and get out of control really quick. I needed something to help me contain the clutter. The picture below is the corner of the kitchen counter that seems to be a magnet to anything and everything. I can't believe I am showing this-so embarrassing!
I found this mail center piece for $5 at the Youth Ranch awhile back. Some other ladies saw the potential in it but walked away so I quickly grabbed it. It was definitely not pretty but I knew that some day it would be!
Everyone knows that a little white paint can truly transform a piece from trash to treasure. It was such a beautiful day here that I was able to paint this outside and it dried so quick. A little sanding and distressing added the finishing touches to turn it into a shabby mail center.
The three tiers are perfect for keeping mail in order. The little drawer holds pens and other such things. I might even have my husband drill some holes in the back to make it into a charging center for our phones. A little organization definitely makes the kitchen look cleaner and makes me feel a lot better too!
I may add some sort of graphic to it. I may add bread dough roses to it. I may add a crystal knob to the drawer. I may leave it just how it is now. No matter what I do or don't do to it, it will definitely help me and my kitchen stay more organized!
