Bomb-Proof Mail Box

Okay maybe it isn’t bombproof, but it looks VERY sturdy. In keeping with our renovation style, Mr. Awesome built this beautiful mailbox  just after moving out of the apartment and filing the change of address form because there wasn’t one here. Necessity is the mother of all invention...

With exception of the mailbox itself (which we got from Home Depot), all materials were reclaimed from the house. Mr. Awesome oiled the pressure treated wood with boiled linseed oil. I think the color is great. Oiled wood is the best! Assuming we get some soil around the base before spring, I can see myself planting iris and lavender. Because we live rurally, all route’s mailboxes are on the same side of the road. Which, is technically the neighbor’s property, I think (or maybe an easement) but clearly across the street. All that aside, it seems a shame to have such a lovely mailbox with no plants around it.
