Garden mailbox toolshed

Had this old package sized mailbox so decided to repurpose it into a mini shed out at my vegie garden. Now everything I need is right at my fingertips and everything stays dry and clean! So many people ask me why there is a mailbox out in my garden!

    I have worked a little with Camphor wood. The Camphor cbe mentioned above are more like a "moth ball" thing. and should be used with caution.

    You can go to most pharmacies and ask for it. These are not moth balls and though they aren't for consumption and as with anything chemical or pharmacuetical related should be kept out of reach of children.They are quite harmless when used correctly.

    You can grow Camphor plants. I wonder if a few leaves would work.

    Saw this idea a while ago. Needed a new mailbox, so I bought one, saved the old one and just finished painting it with a can of Rustoleum spray paint in a bright aqua blue color. They have many colors to choose from now in spray paint. My guy is going to

    Love it! That is exactly what I need to keep my cutters, twine, gloves, etc. in. I like the package size. It will hold a lot of things! And will save many steps to the shed!
