Kent made our mailbox shortly after we moved to our house in June of 2004. After almost six years, it was in bad shape. I thought about buying a new one but, because of its sentimental value, decided to fix it instead.
We had fun sanding, priming and painting and later replacing the numbers and flag.
What a meaningful and enjoyable project! Now, we just have to add some perennials and mulch around the bottom of it.
