Meg vs. The Mailbox: 5 minute paint job

Wednesday: Spray paint the ugly mailbox.

The hardest part about this project was finding the can of paint I purchased for it months ago. I never did, so I had to wait until the car was available and go buy another one. (Thus the "after" picture was taken at night). Good thing it was only 99 cents! I topped it off with a coat of spray lacquer that I already had for another project; I think it helped make it look more finished, but we'll see the real result in the light of the morning. Regardless, it is much less noticeably hideous than it was before, and saves us from paying twenty times more for a new one.

  1. I love the phrase "less noticeably horrible." : )
