We all love a little retail therapy but maybe not the prices that sometimes go along with our favorite shops. Never fear I’ve joined forces with four amazing bloggers who will show us how to create a knock off version of some retail favorites.
Today we’re sharing knock off projects for the kitchen and they are all so Springy and fresh! Please be sure to visit each of my friends to see just how they made their project:
HANGING LETTER HOLDER by THAT’S MY LETTER (you’re here)
I choose to recreate this hanging letter holder in all its gold glory. The retail version is made of metal but I opted to use wood because it’s much easier to work with and I happen to have quite a few wood scraps on hand.
It’s a very simple project to construct made of 1/2″ and 1/4″ plywood scraps. Paint everything gold and then fill with your papers and pens that clutter up the kitchen counter space.
I created step by step building plans, click here for a printable PDF version. Be sure to read through all the steps before beginning.
Create the box from 1/2″ plywood.

Then add the 1/4″ plywood dividers. Easy.
Now finish with gold paint. I highly recommend spray paint for this project however the weather was not in my favor and didn’t allow me any outside time for spray painting so I used Deco Art Metallics in 24K gold with a brush.
Works great to corral all the little bits and pieces of paper, mail, bills, office supplies, pens and pencils.
And even better it cost me nothing to make, just my time. I used all scrap wood and paint I had on hand.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you were inspired to make a knock off of your own, save some money and create your own version to fit your home.
