Toast Rack turned Mail Sorter

I'm not the first one to do this, but I think it's such a great idea.  We used to have a very basic metal mail sorter in our office.  We've actually had it for the past 5 years and my husband had it in his old home several years before that.  Of course when I got my hands on it I sprayed it gold and it served it's purpose, but it was time for something a little more classy.  I've been keeping my eye out for the perfect vintage toast rack.  I was hoping to stumble upon one while thrifting, but never had any luck so I broke down and purchased one on Etsy.  If you are in the market for one I would check Etsy or Ebay.  The prices range from about $10 to several hundred dollars. 

and here it is without the mail so you can see the unique shape.

My grandpa is moving and he has one of these in his get-rid-of pile. I never thought about it being a mail sorter. I may have to go back and pick that baby up.
