We needed a mailbox for the farm or box for dog– and wanted it to match the barn and surroundings. After looking on-line and in stores over the past few months – we realized anything unique was well over $125 to $150.00. We decided to continue the recycle, re-use and re-purpose theme and build one ourselves out of a few pieces of left over scrap lumber and a pallet.
Utilizing the scrap we had on hand – our total cost was under $13. But even if one had to purchase the couple of 2x boards needed for the project, you would still be under $25 to build.
