I’ve always loved a copper mailbox but the prices….not so much! Recently my friend Diana jazzed hers up with some spray paint and stained post. So I got right on it and went out to create my own “copper” mailbox.
Trying to use the pixel tool in Pic Monkey…so please excuse my attempt to blur out my address!
Here’s the spray paint I used…
I thought since it said “high heat” it would withstand our brutally hot summers…we’ll see
The day I worked on my mailbox and post was when Hurricane Isaac hit so I was running back and forth between the times it rained! Pretty funny, or at least my husband thought so! I don’t like how the mailbox post turned out, maybe because I didn’t sand it, just slapped on some stain. I might go back and paint it later on….or maybe I need a new post! We’ve had a good bit of rain and so far it seems to be holding up. My mailbox is a heavy duty type plastic and not metal.
We just came in from a few days on the gulf coast. It rained all the way down on us and then Tuesday night when we went out to dinner, we got caught in a terrible thunder storm! Of course, it was sunshine today on the way home!
Hope everyone had a fun and safe Labor Day! My son and his family spent the weekend with us….here’s my littlest grandson….he’s so darn cute (and into E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G)!
(can’t wait to move this ugly sofa back to the sunroom…..)
