    Rustic Old Mailbox


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     KCRep has lived in her Fullerton, California home for 25 years but never appreciated the antique loveliness of her doorside mailbox until she posted this iReport and read positive comments from the other community members. 'I didn't even notice how rustic it looked since it's been like that for so long. It wasn't until I read all the comments that I decided I really liked how it looked all rustic and old,' she says. 'I'm going to keep it the way it is, at least for now.'

    My house is over 70 yrs old, that's pretty old where I live. This mailbox is built into the house by the front door as opposed to on the front door. The mail drops into a cage box inside the house. Rustic? Old? Gross? Yes on all counts. But, it works just fine. I think it needs a new coat of paint though. Ya think?


    Will I miss home mail delivery?  Naw, because it's not going to happen.  Too many jobs will be lost if mail delivery stops.
