Quick & Easy Mailbox Makeover


A few weekends ago, I decided I was tired of looking at our sad, pitiful, little mailbox! I went to Lowes & purchased a new mailbox post which fit right over the top of our existing wooden post, making installation easy peasy!! Within 30 minutes our mailbox was completely transformed! I love the little flower box on the back! Our new mailbox is a showstopper & adds so much curb appeal to our home!
