One thing that has bugged me for a long time is the stack of mail that is always on one of my kitchen counter spaces. It's not that everybody just chunks it there instead of putting it up. That's really the only place for it. But I still don't like to look at it.
So I am happy that my solution to this problem involves something that I've always wanted. Which, if you know me very well, you will guess is something old. I spotted it right away the last time I was at the flea market.
This old bread box, with it's rusty patches and fruit motif is the perfect solution for my stack of mail. At least for now. I'd love to have a real desk area for our bills and mail, but that will involve a little more creativity at some point in the future.
For now, my counter looks a little less messy. Do any of you have some tips for organizing small areas?
