What a simple - and inexpensive - way to create a stylish and attractive mailbox out of a basic black model. Sure you'll need a little artistic flair - or be handy with stencils - but what a great idea! I saw this in the neighborhood where the owner painted her address and hydrangeas on an otherwise ordinary black mailbox. Any design would do. Let your imagination guide you. Be sure to use paints that are waterproof or made for the outdoors.
