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.

Second Chance to Dream:  DIY Mailbox Planters  #diygarden #gardening

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.

I’m loving my new colorful planters.  Do you have any upcycled planters?  I’d love to hear what you’ve done?
