Color for mailbox?
Speaking of bulbs by the mailbox, every day I go up there to check on how they are doing and get the mail and I am reminded that our mailbox needs a face lift. Our mailbox has seen better days. I doesn't need replacing, it just needs a paint job. Anyone have suggestions for color? Most of the mailboxes on our street are barn red, dark brown or black. It has to be a color that is darker because I'll also be using it to paint our house number on a large rock that's below the mailbox. I hate to go buy a can but since we don't have anything lying around, I'm guessing I'll be using spray paint for this project. RustOleum has a neat website where you can click on the type of object your covering and it gives you a list of sprays that will work on it. I like this American Accent paint. I like the Claret Wine and Lagoon. What colors do you like or think I should paint the mailbox?
