When people are searching for your home, they usually look in their decorative mailboxes at an address to see if they have found you. What statement does not your mailbox do for you? Is it just a common black or white box perched on an ugly stand next to the road? Have you ever thought about decorating your mailbox to reflect your personality and to complement your garden? There are several options to decorate. You can choose the one that best suits your needs. You apply strips of redwood or rocks can paint your mailbox, or use magnetic mailbox covers. If you choose to use magnetic covers, you could even change decorations for seasons or vacations.
Buy a metal mailbox to decorate if you plan to use magnetic covers or the application of rock or redwood strips. Even if you decide to paint your metal mailbox, you can still use magnetic covers seasonally if you wish. Rub the paint with a little sandpaper to scrape it off a little, if you want to apply strips of redwood or rocks.
Apply a wide one-inch line of putty from the front of the mailbox to the back. Next, place a strip of red wood over the putty and press firmly. Repeat this process until all the exposed part of the mailbox is covered. Allow the putty to dry completely before putting the mailbox out on the post.
