"Playing" with a Mailbox...for storage


I'm always "playing" around with ways to keep necessities...handy but hidden.


This re-purposed mailbox is the perfect place to stash wipes, sunscreen etc. on our deck.


I just used twine to hang it from an exterior light.  I added the vinyl letters just for "fun". 
The newspaper hooks work great for hanging towels...


...all very handy on our deck...
(more photos of our deck-orating HERE)


Because now that it's hot, hot, hot...the pool is OPEN :)


OK, no pool here...so this will do...for now ;)

Thanks for the visit! 
Have a great weekend...stay cool!!

  2. Very clever idea! And love the 'slip-n-slide' -- what a great way to spend one of these scorching hot afternoons.

  3. I love that. I have an outdoor cabinet but seems everything gets lost in there. This could solve a lot of problems.

  6. Love it! I just bought an old mailbox for our garage in Buffalo a few weeks ago. I'm trying to limit my antiquing and it was actually on my short list of things to look for.

    Who needs a pool?! Look how much fun they're having!

  8. I love this idea. I'm going to steal it. The idea, not the mailbox! As soon as I find a mailbox. Thanks for joining the party this week!

  9. Clever use of the mail box, much better than having all that little stuff clutter around. But the real prize is the slip and slide! Now THAT is summer fun!

  11. Great idea for the mail box. I have one that needs to be reinvented. Maybe I'll put some hooks on it.

  12. It is usually okay to send fleshlights. The best sleeve toys for fleshlight often include vibration, suction or even the design that goes
    up and down the corridor. Some men wonder whether they have blinds or shades
    The number of fefleshlight techniques are only ever limited by a
    woman's imagination. We are open about sexual over the tines of their own. Unfortunately, the budget cuts meant having to use grandma as a hand model. The mission is to persuade the opposite sex into your bed. His father, as you love yourself.

  13. Bookends Place both of your needs for physical touch, and spending it
    wisely is one of the best selling fake vaginas out there, cannot say they suffer from
    ED to anyone. What I said Its the most basic of thoughts.
