Add Hanging Hardware and Cardboard
Once the door paint is completely dry, flip it over onto a rug to avoid scratches and attach d-hook hanging mounts. (You could skip this step if you are just leaning the door against the wall.) Then hot glue some heavy cardboard to the backside of the shutters so mail doesn’t slip through.
Add Some Personality
Dress it Up
We attached some mismatched house numbers, and a couple nails to hold a printable calendar. This mail organizer is a central command station in the home, so it’s important to include space for a calendar. You could also add a spot for a to-do or grocery list or even use an old computer monitor for a digital display!
