(I’ve been binge-watching Nashville on Netflix)
I’ve got a great DIY for you today and it doesn’t need any nails or screws at all.
Except for hanging that is – other than that, I made my DIY mail sorter using ONLY Gorilla Glue!
I’ve swapped offices with Hubby so now his is in the basement and mine is on the main floor, but he gets a LOT of packages as part of his job, so I wanted to have someplace to tuck his important work mail so that he could grab it on his way to do computer work.
Enter Jaime’s DIY mail sorter.
Her building plans are so easy, but I’ve made it even easier by eliminating the need for nails or screws – and it’s just as solid as it would be with them.
We received a bottle of clear Gorilla Glue as part of our swag bag at the Haven Conference last month, and even though I was a fan of Gorilla Glue before this clear, non-foaming version; I’m even more of a fan now!

For my purposes, I had some leftover ¼” Sureply from…
I’m not sure where this is from to be honest, but it was enough to make a 15″ wide DIY mail sorter with two cubbies.
Some scrap 1×2″ pieces for the bottom and then a coating of the clear Gorilla Glue and some clamp time for a nice, tight fit.
After the sides and bottom were dry, I added more glue and stuck the rest of the pieces together.
A thin coat of primer and two coats of BM’s advance paint in untinted white and done!
I added some chalkboard paint to the front of one of the pockets because it was looking a bit sparse without – but I don’t foresee Hubby ever using the chalkboard feature himself.
His larger courier packages fit easily in the top and the bottom stores his tape dispenser and outgoing courier mail.
I have the DIY mail sorter hung in the front foyer at the top of the basement stairs so he can just grab and go.
This mail sorter is SO EASY with just a few cuts on the mitre saw, and with super-glue it makes it even easier still.
Easy build and organization in one!
Have a great one y’all!
