We’re huge fans of anything upcycled, so we wanted to share this great thrifted office mailbox Instagram print display sent in by Instagrammer @geesharp. Also, get to know a little more about Grace and her display project!
What do you do?
- I am a math and reading teacher for students who struggle K – 6. I pull the students from their class, and work alongside their teachers to help teach them new math lessons, or help them pull through their last lesson. It’s a very rewarding job.
What are your passions?
- My passions are God, my family, and art. Instagram allows for me to capture little glimpses of this incredible world created for us. I use my iPhone to take pictures, and use instagram as an outlet to show my perspective on life. My two year old son, Ezra, was my original inspiration. All I want to do is take pictures of big moments and little moments in his life. I am a wife, mom, believer, and teacher. I love when it rains, and hate waking up. I am someone who will tell you how it is, and use humor when I can’t help myself. J Life is a blessing, and thanks to Instagram, I am able to capture and share moments that make my life beautiful.
Tell us more about this project!
- I love vintage furniture, and attended a vintage market that occurs every couple of months or so, here in Phoenix, Arizona called Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market: @junkinthetrunkvintagemarket. I got this gorgeous office mailbox-like wall piece, with intentions to use it as an advent calendar. It has 25 little cubbies and it made for a very successful advent calendar! Because it is such a nice piece of furniture (and a huge pain in the butt to hang) I decided to keep it up on the wall, and maybe find some cute knick-knacks of some sort to put them on display. I am not a knick-knack person, so it stayed empty for a little bit. While taking down my Christmas tree, I had removed all the Instagram PostalPix pictures that we used as ornaments, and placed a stack of them in one of the cubbies, then realized they would fit perfectly in the cubby! I placed all the photos in their own cubby. It was exactly what I wanted for these pictures, and I plan to switch up the photos every couple of months or so.
Thanks Grace for sharing this thrift find with us!
