You may have seen us mention this mail organizer by Henrie at Simply Belle when we recently announced it as the winner of our most recent craft challenge.  We loved it so much that we decided it needed a proper featuring!  Not only is it beautiful, it is also incredibly practical.  (I don’t know about you, but mail is a challenge for me sometimes.  I set papers and envelopes down on the dining room table for just a moment and – whoosh – they disappear into a black hole!)  She cleverly repurposed magnetic locker caddies from the school supply section, taking them from teenybopper to tasteful with just a few easy steps.  [how to make a shabby chic mail organizer]
