That is absolutely ADORABLE!!!!! So clever, so easy, and not expensive! I have just one thought about this, but I do not know if it will affect you or not.  Are you registered,  and only expecting gift items from our registry lists? Or do you think some people may just bring a card with $ in it? Or even a gift cards to the place(s) you have registered at?  Depending on your answers, you many want to consider putting a lock on it, with a slit for cards…..or just have someone by it or withing eye view.  If its just for cards, and you are expected 99% of your cards to not contain cash, or CGs its perfect!!

The reason I say that is because it is my family and my FI family tradition to just give $$ as gifts, plus, we do not need anything as far as house items go.. so we are having a wishing-well instead. I was having a hard time finding on online thast I liked, that was size appropiate, etc. And was thinking of having a mailbox, however, my online website already has a poem on it all about have a wishing-wel, etc. A lot of my close friend, and guests that are not family , are use to getting a gift from the regsitry… so I wanted to make it as clear, cute/decorative, and not rude by asking for money as gifts, couldn’t figure out how to explain the mail box after I said all I have about the wishing well. 

But LOVE it, well done!

I am doing the same thing, only instead of contact paper, I’m going to paint it black, then spray paint glitter on top of that, then tie a big light pink bow (colors are black, lt. pink, and gold). I’m also going to paint our new address on the mailbox, so if any of our friends want our new address, they can copy it then.
