pink valentine mailbox

February 10, 2011

pink mailbox
I finally got some pictures of Juliet's pink mailbox hanging up in her room.

Here it is before it got its pinktastic makeover. Originally, my plan was for this to be her Valentines Day box, but she said she preferred her box from last year. I had Ben hang it up anyways because I want to use it to send love notes to her throughout the year. She agreed to that.

I think the paint chip valentines look so pretty going inside! These color theory ones from Mer Mag would also look beautiful--have you seen them yet? They'd be so fun to make, but if you don't have time, you can download them and print them out.

Adorable. I made my daughter a cardboard mailbox once but for some reason it didn't get much play, even though she loved checking the real mailbox!

This is super sweet. I picked up an old mailbox at a garage sale last summer that I'm spraying for our entryway - - yours gets me pumped to get going on mine! Thanks for sharing. :) That's a lucky little girl.

what a wonderful mailbox I love the idea of leaving little love notes through out the year.

like my oldest says we should tell the ones we love them everyday not just 1 day a year :)

A can of spray paint does wonders, doesn't it? I was happy we got a warm day a few weeks ago to get this done.

Oh I just don't think my life would be complete without a can of spray paint. This project is case in point! It is adorable!
