Will & I got this great corkboard mailbox when we moved into our T-ville house. It was perfect for holding our mail (aka. becoming a junk drawer), pinning up coupons, and hanging our keys. But within 6 months we were bored with it and desperately wanting a coffee bar… Time for a DIY 🙂
This one was super easy because it was all about making something old into something new again. A renovation. A revival!
So all you need:
- Paint & a paint marker… That’s it!
I chose a pretty purply-blue color (hence why it looks purple in one photo and blue in the other haha). Then it was just a matter of handlettering a cutesy “get-outta-my-face-until-I-get coffee” quote with a paint pen, mounting it near our Keurig (it holds all of our K-cups), and then hanging our favorite gold-handled mugs from it.
Ta-da! Repurposing is fun! What are your up-cycling stories?
