Trash Talk Thursday: Wedding Love Notes

Wedding season is approaching, so I'll feature some uniquely inexpensive wedding décor and gift ideas in the next few weeks!
A great wedding décor or bridal shower gift idea is a simple mailbox for holding cards and/or gift cards on that special day. 
You can place the 1st card inside to demonstrate, so guests will follow.
While thrift stores are a great source for cheap vintage mail boxes, you can still find them new & Made in U.S.A. at local hardware stores such as Ace Hardware.
I found this slightly rusted & dented vintage metal mailbox for $1.00 at a thrift store, and gave it a good soap and water cleaning before covering with 2 coats of flat red wall paint (To Die For Red, Better Homes & Gardens paint from Walmart)  which I later sealed with a hand-rubbed coat of Walnut wood stain. copyright 2013

  1. How do you have time with the move to still do your amazing makeovers?

    1. These are old makeovers, lol! For over a year, I got in the habit of taking before & after photos of every project I did. I've been digging into those huge photo albums & pulling out completed projects for these weekly blog posts ~ writing has been helping keep me sane during this hectic move. It's so nice to know someone is looking at them, thanks!
