EDGEMONT TIN & FILM MAIL STRONGBOX BIRDHOUSE ART PIECE:

Before I start, I wanted to let you know that all my "found object" creations are custom pieces. There will never be another piece exactly like it because my found parts dictate what the end result will be. All birdhouses are primarily decorative BUT can be used outdoors. All of my birdhouses are weatherproof and fully built with the idea that birds could dwell in them. But be sure that the house is placed, hung or mounted in a covered or shaded place to prevent the house from getting too hot or too cold. I try to use all "found" parts in hopes to recycle items and extend their life and keep them away from landfills. I guess you could call them "green birdhouses."

I always love getting my hands on vintage metal tins. That's the way this custom piece started. Once I found this vintage silverplate casserole lid for the "roof", I had to find a good base. This vintage film storage box has been calling me for quite a while and it was perfect. PLUS, it provides great, fun storage options for decorating with this piece. The vintage post office mailbox doors fit perfectly on the sides to offer up more compartment fun. The rest of the piece is a big blur of vintage parts and modified pieces!

Here are the measurements...
Height: 17.5"; Width (side to side):11.5"; Depth (front to back): 8.5".

All of my creations are carefully and securely packaged. I will be shipping this item with FedEx because I've found them to be the safest form of shipping and provide the best handling and care of my items. I also provide a FedEx tracking number upon shipping your item(s). If actual shipping seems a little higher, it's because I use slightly larger boxes to make sure your one-of-a-kind item arrives safely to you and is packed appropriately. Insurance and a tracking number will be provided.
