In the Mail

Bought 2 of these mail sorters at a local junk store. One of them (pictured) is now our entryway table. The second is awaiting the same treatment! 

Used black pipes and flanges for the legs. Easy assembly: just bolts flanges to bottom of sorter, then screw all legs on and screw on flanges as the leg bases. We used muriatic acid to speed up the rusting/aging process.

I even forgot to take off the faded price tag before snapping pics!
