Immediately when I saw this (using a mail box for storage) on Pinterest I knew I would want to copy the idea for my new back garden. It’s such a great idea to have a few often used tools on hand like that.
So imagine my joy when I found this original mail box in the attic along with that treasure of original wallpapers. It’s a little bit junkier looking than “my look” but I love how it’s marked with the name of the area rather than the street (I’ve blurred the number for privacy reasons) and I love the almost military look of it.
I imagine it was being used before the streets in the neighborhood were named and way before people actually moved into the houses but there was still need for mail boxes during the long build period. Oh, and this photo was taken just after Wille and I found it and before wiping 50+ years of attic dust off it so it’s in a little bit better shape than it appears actually. Can’t wait to find a space for it!
