Geek-Sleek Letter Holder—From An Old Computer!

Geek-Sleek Letter Holder—From An Old Computer!

Space is at a premium in my tight-squeeze of a front hall and finding a suitable and stylish solution for letter mail had been an ongoing challenge. That is, until my fiancé ripped apart an old computer and revealed just what I had been looking for.

Living with a Network Administrator means PC-pilfering rituals are performed with some frequency. On the most recent dismantling project, I noticed how a metal heat sink was the perfect shape for holding the selection of mail that continually accumulates by our front door.

Modern lines and a tiny surface area make this an ideal choice in a tight space. The capacity of this design is perfect; the To-Deal-Withs stay on display, and the console display stays tidy.

Really, I couldn't ask for anything more...it simply wouldn't fit!
