As we slowly renovate our aging house, we frequently find the discarded materials impossible to actually discard. The old and obscenely oversized mailbox was recently replaced by a copper-colored mailbox that coordinates with the new exterior house fixtures. The old mailbox sat on the lawn for less than a minute before the children were climbing and sitting on it. As I watched them play, it was glaringly obvious that the old mailbox would make a great seat for small people. In less time than it took to decide the mailbox should be saved, I decided it needed wheels. One can of spray paint and four casters later, we have a seat for playing video games, a solo riding toy, and a crawl inside to spin ride. One less item in the landfill is just a bonus.
