This new mail organizer just makes me happy every time I look at it. The combination of a beautiful ribbon board, a bright red book and a big crate ready to hold anything just stimulates a stream of possibilities.
The metal detail at the crown is a piece of antique metal railing that I picked up at a barn sale. The ribbon board is really my favorite part. I think it’s because the floral fabric goes so well with the wood frame. It also has five linen covered pushpins to hold all your messages and inspiration. So cottage chic.
I decorated the red book with a French flashcard that reads ‘la maison.’ I just thought it was super sweet. The faux leather hanging frames are the perfect size for school pictures, so you can keep your little ones close to you at all times.
The wood crate is actually made for a bottle of wine, but it can be used now for tons of things. Journals, office supplies, bottles of craft paint or spools of ribbon. There’s a turquoise metal label holder above the crate that you can slide your own label into. I’ve also included four clothespins for holding reminders.
It’s a great piece and I had so much fun making it. Please stop by my shop and check out the rest of my listings. Have a great weekend.
