This might look like a pile of junk, and indeed it is, but it has everything I need to make something for the garden.
I found the old mail box in the trash, a bit dented but it will be okay. My handyman Juan gave me the post holder and I had the section of post
and the other piece of wood in the barn.
All to make another mailbox tool holder for the garden!
I painted the mailbox my signature red, stained the post and when the paint dried I screwed it all together. Then...
I pounded the post holder in using a sledge hammer, being very careful not to do any damage to myself. Fortunately, I have very sandy soil so it went it rather easily and I didn't have to do any digging. All that was left was to slip the post in the post holder and tighten the supporting bolts.
Here you can see it better.
I put in the back garden near the pond and the gazebo.
Now I can stash some tools closer at hand for the times when I go out just to wander the garden and then spot a little something I want to do, usually that means
clippers, a hand shovel, or string to tie up plants.
Plus I love the way it looks!
Thank you for visiting.
I hope you are having a happy day.
