Painted garden mailbox.Hand painted decorated mailbox for storing hand garden tools and garden gloves outside.

Approximate Time: 2 1/2 hours

Supplies:

Instructions:

We recently put up a new mailbox and I wanted to recycle the old box. I spray painted the box black. Then I free hand painted flowers, etc. on the box sides, front, and back.

I then stenciled "Sherrye's Garden Tools" on the top. I then sprayed the box with polyethylene to make it weather resistant as it will be sitting on the back porch.

I already had all the supplies on hand so it only cost me my time. I will put my hand garden tools, etc. and my garden gloves in the box.

I think it turned out really cute. It only took me a couple of hours and it was fun. Side view of painted flowers.

I probably saw this in a magazine, but a good way to use an old mailbox is to keep it on a post in your garden, and put your small hand tools, seeds, gloves, etc. inside of it for convenience.
