Mailbox re-do

My mailbox and post were in pretty sad shape. Before I spent money replacing them, I thought I would try to see if I could salvage it. After some paint and stain, it looked brand new and better than I expected!
primed and painted the mailbox and flag pieces. and sanded and stained the post.
Before - mailbox and post needed some help
Was able to remove the flag and handles on the mailbox - so it could be spray painted

    Great job Christina. I'd say it looks better than new! Something saved is always better than something new in my book.
