Mailbox Makeover

One of the fun parts of moving from a condo into a single-family home is that I finally have a free-standing mailbox. I didn't think I'd ever think anything about a mailbox was 'fun' but now that I am old(er) things like mailboxes, vacuums, and weed-wackers really float-my-boat.  I wanted to give my mailbox a little 'spice' so I ordered a decal from Etsy.  Here's what it looked like before:
Well, sort of...I didn't stop to take any pictures before I put the decal on but it looks exactly like the mailbox above.  And here's what she looks like now:



Clearly the elements have covered her in filth but she's pretty and functional nonetheless (that's what she said!!).  The decal was really easy to apply and makes such a nice statement.  I actually put it on just after I sprained my ankle walking out the door this summer and just before going to the express care clinic to have an x-ray! But, I had just received it in said mailbox and couldn't wait to try it!  Totally worth it!
