my cousin took an old salvaged sewing machine base, topped it with a piece of wood, two strips of wood on either side of the mailbox and created a new mailbox stand.

My cousin took an old salvage metal base from a vintage sewing machine base and reworked it into a new cottage mailbox.  She added a piece of wood to the top and two narrow pieces of wood on either side of the mailbox to secure it in place.
