What an ingenious little idea! I found this smart little number on Apartment Therapy, and if I wasn’t such a klutz about knocking things over (or had a measly few pieces of mail to look through) this would be a fab option for our household! It’s powder-coated aluminum, so I’m guessing it wouldn’t tear up easily. And installation is as easy as one-two-screw.
Our mail intake is a little too bulky for this slim and trim version. But perhaps the power shelf would be more useful? Aesthetically, not so pleasing but EVER so useful!
