Use An Old Mailbox for Garden Tools

I probably saw this in a magazine, but a good way to use an old mailbox (the long kind that stands on the post at the end of the driveway) is to keep it on a post in your garden, and put your small hand tools, seeds, gloves, etc. inside of it for convenience. You can repaint the old mailbox with flowers, vines, veggies, whatever. It looks really cute!

Keep Small Garden Tools Handy... A handy place to store pruning shears and small garden tools is in an old mail box. Just place the mail box on a post in a convenient spot in your yard and place the small tools that you use regularly in it. Many mailboxes will even have a hole for inserting a small padlock. If your doesn't, just drill your own hole. Paint the mail box and it can be quite attractive.
