Painting a mail box

Our black mail box hanging on the front door in the full sun for many years had faded to a gray.  It was definitely time for some paint (or a new mail box). I opted for the paint.  

  I always seem to have a selection of spray paint on hand, doesn't everybody?   

This was my inspiration (below).  I found it in one of my English Home magazines.  What caught my eye was the fact that the colors were almost the same as our house.  

Here is our front door with the newly painted mail box.  An easy project, and it didn't cost a penny!

Great job, Donna. It looks so nice and how convenient to have your mailbox attached to the front door.

Nice job Donna! The color matches perfectly!!


Nice. My mailman wouldn't bring the mail to the door. He barely. Eats out of his truck to bring it curbside.
