My Mailbox was in need of a makeover….really bad. I stripped off the numbers and sanded it down smooth.
I started by painting the front and the back of the box in Rustoleum Metallic Gold Spray paint. I decided to mod podged the inside of the box with some pretty coordinating paper. ( My mailwomen is so sweet, and I thought it would make her smile every time she opened my box) I first applied mod podge to the inside of the box. I used the outdoor mod podge. I then applied 2 coats over it.
When it was dry, I sprayed it with the Rustoleum Ultra Clear Sealer.
I then attached new letters to the box. I used Gorilla Clear Glue for outdoors. I then sprayed the whole thing in the Rustoleum Copper Metallic Spray Paint.
I just love this copper color! I then painted under the numbers black. I painted the front and back of the mailbox in a Metallic Gold.
I cut a sponge to the size of a faux brick! I then sponged painted faux bricks over it. I
I added some flowers to the sides for for flower power!I used Kilz Klear over the entire box to seal and protect it from the elements.
It took approx 2 hours, not including drying time to do. Approx $30 for the paint and sealer.
