Mailbox makeover

Our house still needs a TON of work, and its easy to get overwhelmed. I’m trying to to take one project at a time (no matter how big or small) to make sure every weekend is productive. I recently decided to tackle updating our mailbox.

We started with this:

Old Mailbox

Black mailbox, weathered reddish/brown stain, dirt patch enclosed by scalloped landscaping stones. (Again, I forgot to actually take a before picture, but I was able to snag this one from Google Maps!)

We ended up with this:

New Mailbox

What I used:


What I did:

  1. Flipped scalloped landscaping stones over
  2. Sprayed dirt with Round Up + added rocks from the side of the house
  3. Cleaned entire mailbox
  4. Painted wood stand with Behr paint
  5. Spray painted mailbox and address numbers
  6. Installed address numbers (Pro-Tip: Use the templates! It was so easy!)
