My Topsy Turvy Mailbox!!!

I had been trying to figure out what to do so that people would know they were at the right place to pick up their cake and at 2:00 AM one mornin’ I sat straight up in bed and figured it out! I grabbed my sketch pad and took to drawing. The next day I took my drawing up to my father-in-law and asked him is “this” possible. Because he is one of the absolute best carpenters I know he said yes, it can be done. So I started buying the materials along the way and on Valentine’s day we began building it. It took us a little over 2 weeks to build it and about that long for me to paint it. I hope this will make it easier for people to “find” me :)

Thank you!! I am very proud of it!! It was a tremendous challenge as none of the cuts are square cuts and we cut it all with a skilsaw lol. I had to save up for a couple months to get all the materials together lol
