Mailboxes are full of character, they're the instruments that spread the great stories and words of the world. Once a mailbox retires from letter-carrying, there are projects to repurpose them for your home and their potential is far from over!
If your home is a rustic paradise, try repurposing an old mailbox into an umbrella holder! The scratches, dings, and faded paint add to the charm. Make sure to use a sturdy mailbox to ensure the umbrellas will stay upright.
Add some color and life to your front patio by creating a bird feeder out of an old mailbox. With a bright colored paint and some simple hardware, you'll be waking to the sweet sounds of chirping birds in no time.
A wall hanging mailbox can quickly transform into a kitchen organizer station. Cookbooks, recipes, and even a rolling pin can be stored in a central location without taking up counter space! See how to make it Everyday Dishes.
