    If it is a front opening box and cleaned and prettied up , it can be used as, bag holder, pet care items like the brushes, clippers, nail care, or indoor mail holder, both outgoing or incoming, stationary and stamps and pen holder, you get the idea. My favorite was a leave a message box at the front door. On the side was written

    " I am sorry we are not available to open door right now, please leave a message and we will contact you as soon as possible. remember to raise flag."

    I have two old mailboxes. They are mounted on wood 2x4's. One is used for a planter with flowers / plants cascading down. I added a metal arm to one side & hung a garden flag on it. The other is storage for my granddaughters outside items ..I put her sidewalk chalk, jumprope, & bubbles inside.
