BBC has been in school for one week now and I have been busy around here. I don't have a whole lot to show for my efforts just yet but wanted to be sure and join Kimba and her DIY project fun. I love it that she is lenient in the rules so I don't have to feel stifled in what I present each week. Remember back during the garden party I mentioned I wanted to do a little project with my mailbox?
So, whadya think?
Hee hee. As you probably guessed, this isn't my REAL mail box but it REALLY is a mailbox. My BFF and I stumbled upon it in rural Oklahoma. We took a wrong turn in route to her cousins home and thought this was a hoot when we passed by. After we realized we were lost we got a huge kick passing back by because it even had a flag on it. Ingenious! Although I would think the mail would get a little soggy on rainy days. I bet the folks that crafted this are country pigs.
Seriously - this is my REAL mailbox. See how it is getting oxidized on the top? I was thinking about painting or cleaning it up and sealing or something to keep it from doing that. I love the color/finish that it is and could have sworn that it was warranted against doing that. Or should I just leave it alone and let it do its thing? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
Happy DIY Day!
