A friend gave this mailbox to me because she knew I'd do something fun with it. Right away I knew what I wanted to do. The blue rusted patina was gorgeous so I left that alone. From my collection of door knobs I added one with a slightly greenish tarnish on it that can serve as a coat hook. I used the trick of epoxying a screw into the knob and then I put a small piece of wood on the inside of the box for the screw to go in to. For contrast I added some pretty orange/yellow silk flowers that will look great with the approaching fall season.

Something that you'll definitely want to take along with you if ever you have to do house removals. I'd imagine that piece would be something you'd want to show off to friends!
