I love getting mail — especially happy mail, not just junk mail. The holidays are coming, so soon I hope to have a mailbox full of holiday cards from friends and family. Because a happy face in my mailbox makes for happy mail! (And is infinitely more fun to display than an e-card.) Even on the days when you get only junk mail, why not have it delivered to a happy mailbox? Improve your mail outlook and your curb appeal with ten DIY mailbox ideas to transform your sad mailbox into a cheerful one! (featured image via WeHeartIt)
A quick note: before you start building your dream Darth Vader mailbox, be sure that you check the post office regulations. Brittany from Pretty Handy Girl gives some details and explanations here.
And don't forget to come share your latest and greatest home projects at our weekend party at the end of this post! The party favorites are featured in next week's Top Ten post, plus on social media and on our Reader Features pin board — come share and browse!
