My husband and I try to update 1 thing inside and 1 outside our home every year. The projects don’t have to be expensive, just a home improvement. In the 8 years since we moved into our home, we have taken out a pine tree, installed ceiling fans in 2 rooms, replaced fencing on 2 sides of the house, installed a bigger water heater, painted the garage floor, and completed a concrete walkway in the backyard.

Who in Twin Falls is Cool Enough for a Fun Mailbox?

He’s kind of a stick in the mud when it comes to home decorating. He shut me down on flowers growing out of a toilet in the front yard. He won’t let me hang glued puzzles on the wall, and they are VERY cool puzzles. He wouldn’t even let me install a swing set for the grandbaby. Finally, he relented on zombie gnomes in the flowerbed. I’m thinking I can keep this positive reaction on the wife decorating vibe and go for a new mailbox.

Not wanting to go with a traditional look, I asked listeners to help with some cool ideas. Here's what you delivered:

I think we need more people to break out of the mold so my husband has a weaker defense. I also considered the rules the U.S. Postal Service may have on the subject. Come to find out, if I want to make my own, there’s a lot more to this whole mailbox thing than I realized.

If I put my mailbox in the same place it already was, then placement isn’t a problem. Painting it isn’t a bad idea either. Other than that, it may require a law degree to discern all the rules of mailboxes, but I am determined. If I go with something I can order, here are some of my favorites:
