Salvaged Sanity products are created from the salvaged materials I find at estate sales, flea markets and salvage yards. Only the plywood backing, binder spines and D-ring hangers are new, but lovingly distressed.
This Mail Organizer measures 30"w x 16"h x 4"d (depth measured at the pencil cup). This wall organizer comes ready to hang with two D-ring hangers on the back.
The large mail holder is constructed from a vintage book and measures 11" x 9" x 3"-1"deep. This holder is not wide enough to hold standard files width wise, but can hold standard sized paper, i-pads, composition books and notepads. It's lined in a dark olive cotton with a graphic white flower print. This holder hangs from 3 metal grommets installed in the book so it can hang from a 3-ring binder spine that's attached securely to the back board. This allows the holder to be removed from the message board as well.
The small mail holder is made from a vintage Reader's Digest Condensed book and measures 7 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 2 1/2"-1 1/2"deep. It's lined with a dark red floral cotton. It has 2 grommets installed in the book and hangs from a 2-ring binder spine, allowing it to also be removed from the message board. It's the perfect size for small pads, stationery or your checkbook.
The center panel was created from a hand made tray, which is why it's not perfectly square (who needs perfect, right?!). I installed a linen covered corkboard with five hand covered button pushpins. The other half of the tray is a chalkboard I made with black chalkboard paint, adding a small silver cup to hold your chalk. It's adorable.
Under the large mail holder there are 3 silver cups that are perfect for holding paper clips, rubber bands or small change. They're very sturdy and screwed in to the back tightly.
Under the small mail holder is a large pencil holder that I made out of an old camping cup (I think....I'm really not sure what that thing is). Beside the pencil holder is two hand made wrought iron hooks. I've sprayed a tough clear coating on them so that no rust rubs off on you. They're strong and totally built to handle all your keys, earphones or the dog's leash.
All the materials are salvaged and do show some wear, however the paint finishes are new and built to last.
This one of a kind bulletin board will bring beauty to the ugly task of keeping you organized, I promise!
