garden tool cubby

we are adding the finishing touches to our backyard project. yesterday's project was turning our old green mailbox into a garden tools cubby. first step was to paint it yellow.

this large planter is also something i already had so i thought it would be a good place to "plant" the mailbox.

did you notice the red flag got a fresh coat of orange paint? it's all in the details. hubby mounted the box to a 2x4, stood it in the pot then just filled the pot with a bag of leveling sand and a bag of pea pebbles. both leftover from our weekend project.

i placed it right next to my orange ladder (which was another project we did a few months ago). now i have a handy place to keep my garden tools and it didn't cost me a dime because it was all stuff we already had.

here is an updated picture of our triangle.

until we meet again my friends-


  1. Love it! The bright colors really add to the appearance. Great idea

  2. Bailey you look so tiny under the ladder, you sure are adorable. I have wanted to do that with a mail box for a long time, but no mail box available, will keep on looking, love yours. Everything looks so colorful and perfect.

  3. Sooooooooo lovely, It must surely be a joy to sit in that colorful space and enjoy each other's company. You and hubby have some truly creative decorating ideas. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Still loving those bright colors!

  5. absolutely darling!!!! You should be a designer!
