I did a post about 2 years ago on my previous blog, and re-posted it here, but I thought it was time to talk about this cute and functional letter holder again! It is one of the most asked about wall-pieces at our house. And to be honest, it was by far one of the easiest to make.
We use it for all of our fun mail- the stuff you can’t just throw away and really want to display. I found my shutter at a garage sale. To hang it on the wall, Eric attached a piece of wire to two small nails on the back.
After:I used Martha Stewart’s Crackle paint from Home Depot. This stuff goes on sale all the time, so hopefully you can catch it clearanced at your local store. I included the putty knife in the picture as a reminder that this paint should not be applied with a paint brush! I love the finish that the crackle paint gives- it’s a rustic finish that regular paint just can’t offer. So next time you stumble upon a shutter, snatch it up and make a letter holder!
