Seems to be quite well made, and a bit larger than it appears in photograph which accommodates the magazines and junk mail that bombard us each day. I admire the design reference to a folded letter. Attention to the sharp tip of the lid when installing so you don't happen to knock your head like I did.
I have been looking for a big enough mailbox to hold magazines and mail for a day or two. This fit the bill. I was originally looking for a locking one but the only ones that hang on a wall were too big and bulky. This one doesn't lock but it is unobtrusive enough so that people won't really notice it. I needed to paint it black to match my decor. Very easy. Got some black satin spray paint and it worked beautifully. Took the paint really well. Highly recommend this mailbox if you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary and don't want to spend hundreds of dollars!.
The front of my house is brick and the box blends in perfectly. Previously, there was just a mail slot in the wall that frustrated the postman and myself because it was so small. This mailbox is not only good looking, it is a perfect size. I love it.
Was skeptical. But upon opening. WOW. I was blown away. The quality is incredible. I don't care about story on how it was built etc just the fact I've been asked 3x since its been hung 2 days ago where I got it. It's much larger than you see or would expect. Making it perfect. No more squished rolled up magazines....
We used to have a mail slot that emptied into our front room closet but the junk mail was piling up and the cover would sometimes not close, making a nice big slot for warm air to rush out of. Covered it with this. Took about five minutes to put up, looks fantastic. It is big enough for several magazines and small packages. It is surprisingly classy looking! And it forces us to throw out the junk mail every day instead of letting stuff pile up! Even our mailman commented on it and how he likes this better- easier to drop stuff into!
...because I wanted something unique that I also really liked. Everything is so expensive these days, I usually hold out until I absolutely love something to buy it and that's how I felt when I found this mailbox. I was afraid I was going to get it and it would be the size of an actual envelope...even though I read the description six times before I bought it...it's happened to me before where I thought I was being really careful and thorough but was disappointed when it arrived...not the case with this mailbox. I love it! My mailman complimented us on it too! haha!
I love this mailbox! It's very large and I should never have any more problems with mail sticking out of my mailbox.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was just as the picture.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good quality.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Make sure you measure as this is quite large.
This was a really cute mailbox, and looked true to the picture, but was much bigger than I expected, and was too big to be used on my house.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. good
- How accurate was the sizing? Mailbox is BIG! Definitely larger than standard. Couldn't use it on my house... guess I didn't see or read the dimensions.
