Old mailbox, new toy

spinning mailbox ride
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.
