It is made from durable cement and features a white trim and window for a classic look. This mailbox can be easily installed on your property with a shovel and is ideal for a home or office.

A homemade brick mailbox is a great project for any DIYer. You can save a lot of money and time by doing it yourself. It’s a project that is easy to do with a friend or family member, and can be completed in just a few hours. You’ll need:
A wooden post (2×4)
A 12-inch piece of galvanized pipe
A mailbox (either metal or plastic)
A box of mortar mix
First, find a spot for your mailbox. It should be at least 10 feet from the road and in a place where it is safe from traffic. Take your post and drill two holes in it to fit the galvanized pipe. Put the post in the ground where you want it, and then use the galvanized pipe to secure it. Measure the height of the post, and cut your mailbox to that height. Put the mailbox on top of the post, and then add mortar to the top of the post. This will make sure that the mailbox is secure. Next, use your mortar trowel to add mortar to the bottom of the mailbox. Make sure that you have mortar all the way around the bottom of the mailbox. Now, use your bricks to build a rectangular frame around the mailbox. You’ll want to make sure that you put mortar between each brick, and leave a small space between the bricks and the mailbox. Fill in any gaps with mortar, and make sure that you cover the entire surface with mortar. Let the mortar dry for about 24 hours before adding a brick facing.
