**On a side note, doesn't it look like I spray painted a rectangle on a bunch of newspaper? Hehehe
Ahhh, so much better already! The clipboard on the right which has taken the mail sorter's previous spot houses our meal planner, but you'll have to wait for a future post for that one!
They look great together now that they are the same color!
We decided that for the height of back of the mail sorter we would trim the box 2 3/4" and then fold the top over by 1/2".
Here is my wonderful man gluing it all together. We chose to use tacky glue for this project.
Here is the rough shape.
Ben glued construction paper along all of the seams to make sure they would not come undone and to give the top a nice clean edge.
The paper is trimmed and glued in place.
Next I adhered one of my Martha Stewart chalk board labels that was left over from my labeled baking canisters project here. I mounted it to the bulletin board using thumb tacks.
After living with the mail sorter on the key hook board, I decided I didn't like it's placement. Also the board was too thin and the tacks kept coming out. Therefore I moved it to a more logical placement on the other bulletin board, closer to the mail slot that is under the window on the left. The new spot works much better for us.
Having a household information wall has been very convenient for us. We love being able to glance at the information we need as we're trotting out the door. Have you created such a system? Tell us about it!
