Residential Mailboxes have come a long way since that rusted box on the rickety post. Not only am I going for functionality and stability, but curbside decor. We've done a good amount of work here, and I want the front of the house to reflect that. I want to show off just a little.
Mailboxes are a great way to set the tone for the decor of the house and the yard. When we decorate our houses and yards, we often overlook our mailboxes, which is the first thing a guest sees. My mailbox will be used only to receive a newspaper, but I still want it to reflect the decor of the house and be different from the others on the street.
Once I install my new mailbox, I think I will attach a little note for my paper guy. I'll include a tip and ask if he can cease delivery to the puddle.
