The last place you think about decorating is your mailbox. But it’s one of the first things guests and neighbors will see coming up to your home, so why not make it as fun and fresh as you?
Choose some outdoor spray paint in your favorite color and spray the mailbox. You can also add details with acrylic paint for an even more personal touch—think flowers, animals, and beach scenes!
Put your last name on the side of the mailbox with a decal you can customize online. Set up is simple—just peel and stick onto the mailbox like a sticker.
Flowers and shrubs
At the base of the mailbox and around the post, consider planting seasonal flowers and shrubs to give it an elevated and sophisticated look that tells your guests you take pride in your home presentation.
Add onto it
Unconventional mailbox designs have taken the game to a new level. Using the plain mailbox as the starting point, you can make it into a statement art piece in your front yard to match your interests and personality. For example, if you love dogs you can use the mailbox as the body of the dog and add on a head, legs, and tail using other material.
Use these guidelines to help get your creative juices flowing on the design of your new mailbox. Even just a fresh coat of paint or simple sticker can make all the difference.
