Happy middle of the week to you! So far, we’ve been hit with the flu and temperatures so low the snow crunches under your feet. If you don’t know what that sounds like, then you’ve never had those temperatures. Maybe this little project will warm your heart. Get it? Warm??
For my Lowe’s project this month, Valentine’s Day is the theme. Seems appropriate enough, eh? What? You don’t think you can find a Valentine’s Day item at Lowe’s? Boom. Done.
I made some mailboxes for my kids’ rooms when they were younger, so I’ve always loved the idea of “sending” mail to them. I thought it would be a cute idea to have some special mailboxes just for the holiday. These two little cuties will do just the job!
While they were the perfect size, they definitely needed some Valentine’s love. The puns–they just keep comin’!
The trickiest part of the whole project was making sure my 13-year old “mom-this-is-too-young-for-me” son would still appreciate the look and concept of the mailbox. Since I hung them on their bedroom doors, I decided to paint them to coordinate with their rooms. I went with the ambiguous “14″ for Valentine’s Day, and I kept the heart really small. He liked it. Whew!
And of course, Little Miss was easy to decorate for. Some blue and pink, and she was all set. I love the simplicity of both of them. Nothing too cutesy to align better with their ages, and they both really like them.
I created a couple of printables so that we could write notes to them leading up to Valentine’s day. If you think they’ll work for you, feel free to use them! Ca-ute!
So….I still haven’t figured out some nifty way to click on the download. Click below.
