We all have mailbox in our homes. Depending on the size and shape we decide to have, the rest of the mailbox is usually either white or black. But just because is the only option that doesn’t mean it’s useless. In fact, the mailbox will only become a decoration once it’s customized and turned into something useful.

First of all, you must decide on the dimensions of the mailbox. It would be a good number if you have plenty of space. After that you can choose any type of paint or wall color. In any case, make sure it perfectly matches with the rest of your furniture and creates a beautiful contrast.

Here’s a simple tip: avoid sticky paint. That’s because that will only ruin the whole look. Instead, use a flat paintbrush. To create a uniform look, cover the entire letter with a second piece and then continue to paint one more portion. Give it a nice smooth look and normal. Stop when you reach the end.

Also, try to use clean paint. Nothing fancy or sophisticated should ruin a simple look. To compensate for the lack of sparkle paint you can also use a satin wax. It will keep the colors uniform and the original design intact.
