Spiffed Up Mailbox With A Stencil
Have you ever noticed when you spruce up an area that some things really scream out - "Hey, you missed me"? Like when you put old light switch covers back on a newly painted wall - all of a sudden you notice just how tired they look. Such was the case of my mailbox after I redecorated our front porch (see here).
Wow, did it look awful. Well, we can't have that! So, I freshened it up with spray paint, and then stenciled a flourish monogram on the front. I was doing this project late at night and didn't have the right sponge for stenciling, so I used something else that didn't work very well. You know...... when you're in the mood to do a project, sometimes you just make it happen. Because of that, I did go back over the design with a fine paintbrush.
It looks a little hand painted and not as crisp as a stencil, but I'm absolutely good with that. It certainly is an improvement, wouldn't you say?
