Mid-Century Mailbox

I've been hunting for a mid-century modern mailbox. I've also been looking for one that wouldn't break the bank (who knew mailboxes could cost so much). This Apartment Therapy post was a nice start and led me to the Postino Mailbox.

I think it will look great with the modern Eichler address numbers and mid-century door knob we're planning on.

  1. We are eyeing the same mailbox. Homegirl wants it outside, exposed to the weather; I want to keep it tucked up under the covered parking spot (where our current janky mailbox is). I read (on amazon) that this mailbox rusts quickly. Hmmm what to do?!

  2. Well, if/when we add it to our place I'll let you know how it goes. Ours will be under a covered porch, but should still see a bit of weather.

    And I've always been a fan of buying things from places that have a generous return policy, like a local hardware store.

  3. Hey, I'm a little late to this party, but I've had that mailbox on my front porch for several years, and it's not showing any signs of rust or other deterioration. Did you buy it?

  4. Thanks for the info, good to know it doesn't rust. We haven't gotten the mailbox yet, we've decided to do the entire porch in one big redo instead of piece by piece. So we've still got some paint colors to pick and a few other details to figure out before we buy everything. But the plan is still to go with the Postino for the mailbox.
