Mail organizer

I came across the mail organizer brag post based on Ana's Numbered Cubbies plan and thought it was a great idea. Also, I had some new Annie Sloan Chalk Paint that I was very eager to test out!

I have to say, I love my new process for creating furniture in the house:
1. Cut boards
2. Give them to my 2 & 4 yo daughters to "whack on"
3. Invite the girls to paint
4. ENJOY!

Thanks Ana for all you do!
p.s. Note "Industrial Chic Reclaimed Shelves" in last photo, thanks again Ana!

Finish Used
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. If followers of this site haven't checked out ASCP, you should! I've just started using it and love it! It is amazing for painting furniture - no prep, sanding, priming etc. required. Very unique finishes can be created. For this piece I used a combo of Old White, Paris Grey and Duck Egg Blue, followed by clear and dark wax.
