Do It Yourself has a cool project using those old metal grates found in older homes and turning them into these beautiful looking mail storage grates. A functional and stylish accent piece for your walls!
From the site:

Small iron grates, designed to sit about an inch of the floor in older homes, look terrific mounted to the wall. By positioning the open edge at the top, you’ve got the ideal spot for collecting mail and papers until they’re sorted and filed. Don’t want to forget bills to pay or groceries for tonight’s dinner? Fashion a grate by the front door and stick reminders in it.
