Rustic Mail Organizer
All you'll need is about two hours of time and a free pallet for this project! SO simple. I love using pallet wood when creating things since it is (usually) FREE!! You can typically find pallets at home improvement stores or outside local business' who are more than happy for you to take them out of their way!!For full details and instructions, visit our full post here!
Step 1: Disassemble your palletStep 2: Cut Slats to SizeOnce your slats are cut, arrange them in the order and height that you want. Trust me when I say there is no right or wrong way here and every organizer that we have made has varied!Step 3 - Affix TogetherOnce your stained slats are fully dry (I'd say it takes about 20 minutes to dry), you can begin the assemble the base for your organizer!
Step 4 - Assemble Mail CompartmentBelow is what your organizer should look like at this point!!
Step 5 - Create Mason Jar HolderUsing your drill and a circle cutter, cut out an appropriately sized hole. The size depends on the size Mason Jar you want to use. I suggest using a Mason Jar that has a big enough lip, and won't fall through!Step 6 - Fix Mason Jar HolderStain the jar holder prior to attaching. Then, glue the back of the holder and fire some nails through the back of the base into the holder. For some added support place a small piece of wood underneath the jar holder, stain, and secure with a couple of nails and glue. This will stop the holder from bending. See ours in the picture below!
Step 7 - Attach Key HooksStep 8 - Hang and Enjoy.
