About This Project


I was in desperate need of a mail organizer and knew when I saw the the plans for the numbered cubbies that it would be perfect with some modifications. The best part of this project was that it was free...all from scraps and done in less than a couple hours.

Required Skill Level: 
Starter Project
Estimated Time Investment: 
An Hour or Two (0-2 Hours)
Finish Used: 
A coat of black spray paint and then a coat of white. I painted on the letters and then sanded everything. I used a brown/gray glaze to tone down the white.
Estimated Cost: 
FREE - totally made from scraps and paint I had around the house


Thank you! This little box has really been handy and keeps everything so tidy. EmileeA - It is 19" long, the back is 8", and the front is 5.5". The divider is 11.25" from the left side. Hope that helps!

hi there! I ve been working on a small cubby shelf similar to this and was interested in seeing how /where you joined the boards- ex. The front board (5.5ft) to the dividers... I don't see and nails or screws! I'm guessing you applied wood filler atop the nailheads. But I'm having trouble joining my boards and if you can kindle let me know where you attached the front board to dividers w nails or was it just glue?!? Thanks so much!
