Flower-Burst Mosaic Mailbox

0 loves

What started out as a wood-working project with my Husband to make a bigger mailbox to replace the outdated black metal one, turned out to be this unique eye-catching piece. We were inspired by a YouTube video, but didn't have a pattern, so we made our own through trial and error. The box tilts out on a small piano-hinge. The top has a shelf where I can change decorations to match the season. As an after-thought, I added a fold-down flag to indicate to the Mail Carrier when I have out-going mail. The mosaic pattern was made up as I went along with stained glass scraps. Everyone remembers our house now as “the one with the pretty mailbox.”
