DIY Mailbox Planters

Are you enjoying the warmer weather?  I sure am.  I’m loving getting outside and digging in the dirt.  I’m excited to share with you my newest project-  my DIY Mailbox Planters.

Through the years I have collected these mailboxes that I found at Goodwill and garage sales.  I found them for 1.00 each and I knew I could find something to do with them.  I have used the brown one before in my bathroom as a magazine rack, but when we redid the bathroom it never went back up.  So, I wondered how they would look painted in bright colors and hung on my house with a shade plant in it.  I think they look GREAT!

I took the mailboxes and gave them a couple coats of spray paint.  I didn’t need to drill holes in the bottom because there are gaps so the water can drain through.

I added a layer of gravel to the bottom to help the water drain out and I then added black dirt and  planted shade plants in them since they are on my covered porch.
