This was a momentous project around here...our mailbox was one of the very first updates we did to our house and now we have lived here long enough (almost fifteen years) that we had to do it all over again. The post had completely rotted away and was barely being held in place by the big plant around it.
We bought a new (locking) mailbox and post, but you know me, it had to have something a little extra cute. We purchased a planter box that Sean painted white and I bought too many flowers for.
It's working great and, thankfully, some grass seed has grown in around the base. Now, we should be good to go for another fifteen years or so.
