Introduction: Modern Mailbox

I took out an old, failing mailbox and built a new, modern mailbox from cedar from the big box store. I'm so happy with it!

I built a small concrete slab to support the mailbox posts, which makes the structure sturdier and keeps the posts from sitting in the ground and prone to rot. But you can also just skip this step if you prefer and extend the posts to put them right in the ground.

Be sure to watch the video above for an even better tutorial.

Supplies

For the Concrete Form:

For the Mailbox:

Step 1: Dig and Prepare a Hole

I’m going to make a concrete pad for the mailbox measuring 15" x 25".

I started by digging a hole, bigger than the dimensions above so I had room for the concrete form. I prepared the hole by lining the bottom with gravel, spreading it evenly and level. And then I cut a 2x4 into 4 pieces and screwed them together to make the concrete form with inner dimensions of 15" x 25".

I moved the gravel around until the form was level and the top was even with the ground. And then I took wooden stakes and hammered them in around the form to secure it into place.

You want to make sure the top of your stakes are below the top edge of the form. This way they dont interfere with the screeding process once the concrete is poured.

Step 2: Pour the Concrete

I mixed up one bag of Quickrete in a plastic mixing tub.

Before adding the concrete in, I hosed down the dirt hole. This moisture will help slow down the curing process and avoid cracks. Then I added the first half in, making sure to fill in all the edges and corners.

At this step, I laid in a couple of short rebar pieces. This will add strength and help the slab resist cracking. This small slab could probably get away without them, especially in my warm climate. But the rebar was inexpensive and easy precaution.

I then mixed up more concrete to fill up the rest of the form. I used a scrap 2x4 to screed across the top of the concrete and push it level and into place, making sure to get the concrete to fill all four corners.

I then switched to a concrete float and starting smoothing out the surface. The goal here is to force larger aggregate below the surface, fill in the low spots and create a flat, smooth surface.

Step 3: Add the Post Anchors

I’m setting galvanized post anchors in the wet concrete to hold the posts for the mailbox.

I pressed the anchors down into the concrete, at my measured placement, while it was still very wet and malleable. It’s super important here to make sure they are perfectly level and in line with each other. It’s also important to place them with metal sides facing front and back (this will make sense later).

After most of the surface water had disappeared, I then used an Edging Tool and smoothed and rounded the edges of the slab. And then I left it all to cure.

After a few days of cure time, I pulled away the form from the slab. And then I filled back in the edges with dirt.

Step 4: Set the Mailbox Posts

The inside base of this mailbox is made with pressure treated lumber. I took a 4x4 and a 2x4 and cut them to size on my miter saw.

I set the longer post in the back and perfectly plumbed with it shims, confirmed by a post level. I then clamped it into place and marked where the holes for the bolts will go. And then repeated the steps for the shorter front post.

I drilled out the holes for the bolts. And then put the posts back in place and knocked in the bolts, which are galvanized for exterior use, secured them with galvanized washers and nuts.

And here you can see why it’s important to set the post anchor sides facing front and back. This way the bolts don’t interfere with the wood slats.

Step 5: Add Post Support & Front 2x4

One piece of 2x4 will connect the two posts and create the horizontal surface for the mailbox to sit. I added pocket holes on one side. Then secured it into place with exterior screws on the opposite side. Make sure this support is level.

The last structure board to add is this front 2x4, which will give a little more meat to the base. I clamped it into place, pre-drilled with a counter sink bit and secured it with screws. The counter sink bit will allow the screws to sit below the surface and not interfere with the slats.

Step 6: Add the Slats!

The slats I’m using for this mailbox are cedar, which look good and are a naturally rot resistant wood, excellent for outdoor use. Even better, they're inexpensive fence pickets.

I quickly sanded their rough surface down with my palm sander and cut my first slats to size on my miter saw.

I then made sure this first board was level and then clamped it in place. I used a framing square to line out my screw holes. Then I pre-drilled and screws the slat into place. I’m using exterior trim head screws, which have a smaller head and minimize the appearance.

I kept this process going all the way down (on both sides). I wanted a 1/8th inch gap between each slat, and I found that a steel carpenter square was the perfect spacer.

Taking the time to make sure you screws are in line all the way down will really make a difference in the finished look.

Step 7: Add the Trim Pieces

I cut and installed the front, back and top trim boards with the same screws.

I used exterior glue on this top cap. I could have screwed it on, but no screw holes on a horizontal piece means less ways for water to get in and eventually warp the wood.

Step 8: Add Wood Finish

I love the way cedar looks and I wanted a finish that would preserve the natural cedar color and prevent it from turning gray over time. I’m using Total Boat’s Halcyon Clear Varnish, which is an excellent choice for exterior projects. It is a durable finish that is super easy to apply. It provides excellent UV protection from the sun. It dries fast so you can apply another coat in an hour without sanding. And it dries to a clear satin finish that accentuates the wood grain and improves clarity.

Step 9: Attach the Mailbox

And finally, to attach the mailbox, I grabbed my slim right angle drill and screwed the box to the base.

And with that, this modern mailbox was done!

Step 10: Enjoy!

I'm so happy with how this mailbox turned out! Our curb appeal really improved with this one project and it looks like a pro build. It is not a difficult project and will last much longer than the previous one.

The mailbox is a funny thing. Boring and bland, and no one will think twice. However, a unique mailbox design, and your letter carrier will do a double take. Almost anyone walking by notices a creative mailbox post sitting in the front yard. You could even say the mailbox connects our homes with the outside world.

They stand on every front walk and at the end of driveways, serving as our homes landmark. The classic mailbox goes hand-in-hand with improving a homes curb appeal, and often a little change can make a world of difference.

Below we give you instructions to build a mailbox post just like ours, as well as 21 unique mailbox ideas created by others!

Our DIY mailbox post

We use to have ‘that’ mailbox at our house. The metal one barely hanging by a single screw off the white picket fence- it was terrible! Even worse it took away from the rest of our landscaped yard. But for some reason, we never made replacing it a priority.

Finally, the day came to replace our ratty old one with a proper mailbox post. I ordered a black post mount mailbox off the internet and went digging in my scrap woodpile to see what I had.

Mailbox post design and construction

I created a simple design that ties in with our wood beams and eventually the new front fence. A combination of 2×2’s, 2×4’s, and 2×6’s attached to a 4×4 post.

mailbox post design

Step 1: Set your mailbox post height

I used a post anchor to secure my 4×4 so my mailbox was movable. Once it was firmly hammered into the ground, I set my mailbox height and cut the post to 42″. Don’t secure the post into the anchor just yet.

Step 2: Cut the horizontal pieces

Take some creative liberty in this step and cut the pieces to whatever size you prefer. My first coarse was a 2×6 cut to 20″ in length (the length of my mailbox). Cut one end at 45 degrees. Repeat this exact same cut for the other side. The final piece for this row is cut at 45 degrees on both ends so the three pieces can be mitered together (see photos below).

unique mailbox

If you don’t own a miter was, these cuts can also be made with a hand saw and a miter box.

Step 3: Repeat horizontal cuts

Continue the same cuts for the remainder of the post. I varied the thickness of the horizontal rows randomly from the top to bottom to create a more unique mailbox design. For the skinniest sections, I ripped a 2×4″ in half on my table saw. Tip- any time you are ripping skinny pieces on a table saw, be sure to use some sort of push stick. These can be made or purchased.

Step 4: Add the horizontal rows to the mailbox post

I found it easiest to assemble the U-shaped horizontal rows before attaching them to the post. I used small finishing screws for assembly. Pre-drill the holes beforehand to prevent the boards from splitting.

Once the horizontal rows are assembled, attach them to the mailbox post. Use trigger clamps to hold everything snug when mounting, and a set of blocks to keep the spacing even from one row to the next.

Step 5: Stain/seal the wood

I used Cabot Australian timber oil for this project. It is the same stain used on the timbers around our house, and will also be used on the front fence (when I build it…). I love this stuff and it’s incredible durable. The beams on our house were stained 5 years ago and they still look the same as the day they were done.

Step 6: Attach the Mailbox

Attach the mailbox, plumb the post and tighten the anchor bolts in the spike. That’s it!

DIY mailbox post

This is a really simple DIY mailbox post idea that anyone can tackle. All of the miters take a couple hours to cut and assemble, but that is the only difficult part to the whole process.

DIY Mailbox Makeover

A step by step guide to create an inexpensive way to bring create your own DIY mailbox makeover including minimal supplies and simple, modern design

It’s all fun and games showing you guys the inside of my house (like our office or guest bathroom or even our porch all dolled up for Christmas, for example) like I’ve got it all together, but do you want to see a giant secret that all our poor neighbors know about us?

before mailbox makeover
before mailbox makeover

The outside of our house is a friggin’ disaster. Absolutely zero curb appeal. Zero stars. Would not recommend.

Overgrown bushes against the house, barely alive grass and absolutely dead whatever-this-is that’s literally engulfing our poor mailbox. God bless our mail lady’s arms.

We finally pulled these bushes up which just felt like a deep breath.

Don’t you mind the dead patches of grass. We’re not focusing on that right now. One thing at a time guys. But herein lies the problem – now that the bushes are gone, it’s really obvious our mailbox is a snooze fest. I’m aware that mailboxes shouldn’t be like bedazzled or anything, but it did feel like it was time to give ourselves a little DIY mailbox makeover.

Supplies:

*some affiliate links are included for your convenience

Steps for your own DIY mailbox makeover:

First, lay out your mailbox on the 4×4 post to measure where it needs to sit.

layout for DIY mailbox makeover

As you can see in the picture above, draw a line to mark the bottom of your mailbox and then another line 4 inches from that. That will mark where your little cross section post will go and help you with the next step.

Using your circular saw, make a bunch of little scores in the wood so it’s easier to remove with a hammer and chisel.

connecting support beam for mailbox makeover

Add your T bar cross thingie into the slot where you just removed all the scored pieces of wood and screw it into place.

Side note: I was inside while all this was going down and I hear Char say, “Daddy, it kinda looks like a cross! I wish I could die on it like Jesus. Tell mama, “Look, look, I see Jesus on the cross,” and then get her to come out here.”

Pastor’s kid probs. And yes. She’s in her sleep gown. And slide sandals. Holding her play hammer and a rubber mallet. Standing on a chisel. Is it really a custom mailbox if you don’t have all of the aforementioned things?

After creating the mailbox post itself and the support piece (the little piece that makes the other side of the triangle) make sure everything is screwed together and then add the 2×8 cut to size to support your mailbox.

I would give you all measurements for this, but the reality is it’s somewhat subjective so a lot of this was just winging it for us, going by the measurements that we had for the specific mailbox we chose. Sorry, I have tried to tell y’all I’m not good at this DIY instructions thing.

We chose to paint ours white, but you totally don’t have to do this if you don’t want. You can leave it as is, paint it a different color or stain it and seal it. We used white spray paint! I’m sure you could put a coat of paint or 2 on this or 2 if you’d rather do that, but I’m lazy. Shocker.

We attempted to “plant flowers” around here, but let’s be honest – neither one of this duo knows anything about planting flowers or gardening. So, we will see if these last, but the point is the mailbox anyway so just don’t mind the “flowers”.

This is one of our easiest DIY projects we have done yet! And the very first in a looooong list of projects to add curb appeal.

This just goes to show you that in order to create your own DIY mailbox makeover, it really doesn’t have to cost that much or take you a long time. But a pro tip? Before you tear your other one down and put this one up, make sure you either do it on a Sunday or wait until after the mail has come. Not speaking from experience or anything.

Modern Mailbox DIY

I recently found this incredible mailbox on Etsy, and it was exactly what I was looking for. Not willing to shell $250 out for it, I decided to build it myself. Here’s how I did it…

First, we need some materials. I purchased a 4x4 fence post, and 1x3 cedar from Home Depot. Carefully go through all of the available pieces at Home Depot, or wherever you’re getting your lumber from, to get the straightest pieces.

image

I don’t have a proper setup for cutting, so I secured a small piece of wood in my vice to make sure all pieces were cut to the same length.

image

All cut, now it’s time to sand everything down. I just used 80 grit paper.

image

Sand all sides.

image

Preparing for the staining process.

image

I used Minwax Dark Walnut. Brush it on, let it set for about 10 minutes, then wipe off the excess with a rag. Dark walnut can be over-powering, so I only used one coat.

image

After the stain is dry, you can begin applying your clear coat. I used Minwax Spar Urethane, which protects your work from the elements. I apply 3 heavy coats, then sand with a fine sandpaper of 320 grit or higher, then finish with a final coat of urethane.

image

A quick test fit of the pieces and the house numbers.

image

If you’re happy with how it looks, it’s time to starting putting it all together. 

image

To support the top pieces, where the mailbox will sit, I added a bracket for some extra support. 

image

One side completely attached.

image

Second side finished, and the primary structure is now complete.

image

Now it’s time to add the house numbers. I used Hillman Group’s Brushed Nickel house numbers, which had the best look for the cost.

image
image

Here is the finished mailbox post, ready to be installed.

image

I had some leftover wood, so I made matching number plaque to go by my door.

image
image

Final product again.

Find A Modern Mailbox That Matches Your Home And Style

Maybe we don’t receive as much physical mail as we used to, with everything being done electronically these days, but that doesn’t really make the mailbox useless. Keep it for nostalgia or for receiving packages, but don’t eliminate it just yet. In this scenario it could even be cool to update its design so it matches your home and personal style and while you’re at it you should look at some modern house numbers too. Just by talking about it makes us really excited to look at some modern mailbox designs so let’s get started.

View in gallery

The Stratford Parcel Mailbox is an all-in-one piece. It’s made of raw dark gray hot rolled steel and it has two compartments inside. The upper section is your classic mailbox for letters, magazines and other things and the lower compartment is bigger and designed for packages. There’s a lock at the back so your packages stay safe inside and if you want you can also request a lock for the mailbox at the top too.

View in gallery

The Gibson Classic Mailbox is designed to be wall-mounted and has a pretty simple and basic design. Its sides are made of 14 gauge steel and the mailbox is designed to be waterproof and to keep your mail safe inside, untouched by the sun, rain or snow. It has mounting holes in the back and it comes with a lock and keys.

View in gallery

The design of this Mid-Century Modern Mailbox is inspired by the look of mailboxes produced back in the 1950s and 1960s. It’s quite simple but it’s also quirky, especially in terms of color. This funky mailbox is crafted out of 20 gauge steel which makes it considerably thicker and more durable than most mailboxes produced today.

View in gallery

This modern wall-mounted mailbox is the Letterman 4. Its design is very clean and simple and it comes in several bright and eye-catching colors such as orange, green, red, silver as well as some less intense nuances such as white, black, blue, dark green and anthracite. The lock is under the mail flap and doesn’t interrupt the minimalist appearance of the mailbox.

View in gallery

The TomTom mailbox is a really cute product with a design that’s modern, simple and quirky. It’s small and easy to install and it comes in several lovely accent colors including red, light grey, blue and yellow. The box is made of steel and the pole which supports it wooden and this combination is really nice. This actually looks like a bit like a small birdhouse or like a cute little robot head with a super long and thin neck. Either way, it’s cute and funny.

View in gallery

You’ve Got Mail, that’s the name of this modern mailbox that looks a lot like an app icon. Its design is part nostalgic and part futuristic. It may look like a simple envelope but this mailbox has a fingerprint scanner and that colored triangle at the top is actually a solar panel. The mail is inserted from the side and then you get a message on your phone or computer letting know that you’ve got mail. It’s one of the few truly modern mailboxes which incorporate new technologies into their designs.

Isn’s this mailbox simply adorable. It’s called Koo Koo and it’s shaped like a bird. The design is cute, playful and stylized in a really cool way too, allowing this modern mailbox to be both eye-catching and functional. It was designed by Playso in collaboration with Justin Hutchinson. Notice that the wing is open so the mailbox can be spacious in order to also accommodate magazines and newspapers.

This is a modern mailbox produced by Javi Design. It’s very versatile and can be installed as a freestanding accessory or can installed on walls, fences and other surfaces. The designers wanted to make sure their mailbox would be able to withstand the harsh Australian climate so they built it out of sustainable Accoya wood and coated steel.

View in gallery

If you’re looking for a simple, large and modern mailbox which can complement your house, you might be able to find something cool on etsy, like the No. 1219 Custom Post-mount Mailbox which comes in 24 different colors. It’s made of powder-coated aluminum which makes it durable but also lightweight.

View in gallery

The Waldo Modern Mailbox is another stylish and chic option. As some of the other ones we’ve shown you today, this mailbox can be customized to display your house number as well. It’s made of stainless steel and hardwood and it looks chic, elegant and is perfect for any modern or contemporary house, especially one that has a clean, geometric architecture with box-like volumes

View in gallery

Here’s another modern wall mounted mailbox, also from Etsy. This one offers the option of etching your name or house number on the wooden front panel. The frame of the mailbox is made of stainless steel with a powder-coated finish available in black, red, bronze or white.

View in gallery

The Louis S wall-mounted mailbox can also be customized this time via laser-engraved lettering. The design of the mailbox is simple, modern and pretty versatile. In a way, you could say it looks timeless. It’s sleek and durable and designed to last for a long long time.

View in gallery

If minimalism is what you’re looking for in a modern mailbox, you should check out the Rok Mailbox which has a very clean and simplistic design. It’s also quite large which makes it practical. The house number is cut in the bottom right corner of the mailbox so this is really a two-in-one accessory.
