Mailboxes to Planters Makeover

Over at Second Chance to Dream, Barb had some old mailboxes she’d collected over time from thrift stores and garage sales.  At just $1.00 each, the price was right and Barb knew she’d come up with some clever use for them.


This spring, Barb thought of a great use for her mailboxes: planters for growing shade plants under her covered porch.  Barb updated the mailboxes by spray painting them in bright summer colors.  After planting flowers, she hung the mailbox planters on the house.  Don’t they look cheerful on Barb’s porch?


Find out the rest of the details on how Barb transformed these mailboxes into planters at Second Chance to Dream.
