I love this storage idea! Now to grab an old book...

I was very excited to run across this project while perusing the site. What an incredible home decor idea for book lovers. Imagine a vintage book done like this and then use the inside pages for other projects. I wonder if there is a way to make the sides even stronger to hold more weight. I would think about adding a metal side that is grommeted to the binding.

As a book lover, this letter box would certainly make sorting through mail much more exciting!

I'm just going to pretend I didn't squeal upon seeing this. I definitely need to make this now. I don't even get that much mail, and I feel the need to have it in my life. Maybe it could work to hold other books in my current TBR pile. (I'll make it work!)
