A bigger, better mail sorter with Knuff
Materials: Knuff Magazine file (2 sets), wood glue, paint, scrapbook paper, Mod Podge (or stain instead)
Description: 1. Use wood glue to attach all the Knuff magazine files together in the configuration shown -- I did the bottom two together first and let them dry with clamps, then the top two one at a time.
2. Paint the insides whatever color you want; cut scrapbooking paper the size of the outer surfaces and mod-podge them on the outsides.
For a "nicer" look, the whole thing could be stained instead of painted and mod-podged, and if I was going to put this by my front door, I would have done that, and maybe added hooks for keys on the bottom -- but I wanted something more fun-looking.
I have the thing attached to the bottom of a cabinet with nuts and huge washers, using the existing holes in the tops -- but it could be attached to a wall any way you want, and a small shelf (such as EKBY TRYGGVE) could be added to the top.
Inspiration for this came from here and here.
