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.
