    I also have one in my back yard to hold the same things are yours does. I think it’s a wonderful idea and very convenient. I wish my mailbox was as pretty as yours. Also, I love the hostas that you’ve planted at the base. A job well done!

    Oh no, my secret is out! I have one in our yard – a 200 year old brick one room school house in up state NY. It is the best! We have little shed space and if I put my tools away, they are still there when I open the door! Nice…..
    My box is “farm size” tin but painted by me in painting class oh so long ago!
    You are amazing! Great ideas, style and energy!
    I just found you and have enjoyed your blogs. Enjoy your summer!

    I am sooo envious of your copper mailbox!!! *swoon

    I have one on a post in my pole barn. Been meaning to do the same thing for years! (Where is my post home digger??) But for now, I have a vintage wall hung mailbox that is attached to the side of my deck/porch I am using. One of these days I’ll find that post hole digger!

    Love the idea btw!

  7. Very cute idea! I always have to go back to the garage and worm my way in past the car to get my stuff. I’ve been known to leave my tools outside and would have appreciated a handy spot like this! I’ll have to bring this idea up with the hubs!

    You are not crazy, I did the same thing years ago and it worked out great! Never got a piece of junk mail either.

      Susan, I am so glad to hear I am not the only one! I think Jason (my husband) has given up and decided to let me keep it:). If only there was a way of getting rid of junk mail in the other mailbox!
