Well, there are SEVERAL things amiss, but one really stands out in photos, and sadly, it's been like that for months.
Yesterday, instead of stuffing, return addressing, addressing and stamping 325 Christmas cards, for example, I opted to get out my wood putty and find JUST the right screw, bolt and washer and fix that darn handle.
Then, I was reminded when I opened it to fix it, it's totally NASTY in there.
We've never used it for sponges and whathaveyou, because who does? Gross. Those things need to air out. But what if whomever buys our house wants to use it? I decided it definitely needed a fresh coat of white paint.
I stopped short of caulking the seams only because I didn't have any white caulk on hand.
So I DO feel like I accomplished something with this little impromptu project. Albeit something no one will notice.
You know what WILL be noticed? The lack of Christmas cards in 325 mailboxes this week.
I'd better get right on that.
