DIY Letterbox Umbrella
Do I mention enough, how rad I think my boyfriend is? He had the idea (actually I think it was a combined light bulb moment) of making our letter box an umbrella because our packages sometimes get wet. We went down to the plaza and the only small umbrella we could find was decked out in a football team's colours and logos. The lady at the counter warned us (after we told her our mailbox idea) that the umbrella was so cool someone might nick it :p Mmm we're not really sports people, so that was kind of lost on us, lol. Anyway when we got home Ben decorated it with his recent spray can loot (we've both been practising with the cans..they're hard!) and then we strung it up... ta-da...no more wet mail. It's been up for a while now and no one has pinched it, I think the new colours might be a deterrent :) lol
P.S. I personally LOVE junk mail but I live with a bunch of commercial haters, so no trash for me :(
P.S.S. You can see my spray paint attempt over at my other blog, yes I have more than one blog, crazies! Be warned it is extremely cat-centric!
