Tool & Mail Box Recycled
I bought this mailbox (painted black & vinyl lettering on it) for $5 @ garage sale last summer with the intention of trying some 'license plate' art on it (inspired by lindasewandsew on this GJ forum). Here's how it came out!
When Spring has 'sprung' enough that the frost is out the ground (now about 10" snow there), then my DH & I will add a post out in my Secret Garden where my log swing is & I'll put a few handtools in this mailbox ...so they'll be readily available for digging & weeding. :-)
A friend from this forum sent me some license plates & I have purchased some @flea markets so I hope to do some more license plate art. I did learn that my hands aren't strong enough to 'snip' the tin ... but my DH had a jigsaw blade that would work. He also taught me how to use 'rivets' .... cool! Nuts & bolts would work, too.
