Make a Garden Planter From a Mailbox!

When driving with a friend past her bank of mailboxes, we turned to see a workman replacing an OLD with a NEW mailbox for my friend’s next door neighbor. ‘Hmmm, would they be tossing out the old one,’ we asked?
That’s how this mailbox eventually came into my possession. I love it,…it’s big and heavy! I know just what I’ll do, and you all will see the result…someday soon.
It pays to let your friends know you like old junk for the garden..
Step by step instructions for your new mailbox planter!
A friend snagged this mailbox for me, nice and heavy and perfect for my future planter as we passed the workman removing it.
I protested,..’no, don’t bother,…really! Oh, no, please don’t ask!’ But my friend had already walked over to talk to her neighbor’s house saying, ‘if it was for me I wouldn’t, but for you….’ Oh, my! Embarrassing!
