Our mailbox was white, scruffy and worn, but there was nothing wrong with it otherwise.
for a new mailbox and came to the conclusion that mailboxes are
extremely expensive. So, I decided to paint it black, give it LARGE
white letters, letting the mailman&everyone else see our numbers,
since I like them, and also add the magic words that makes the mailbox
only get mail and not shit....if you know what I mean. All I did was to
wash it off with Yes (dish wash Yes, yes!) and then paint, noting else. I feel very happy with
my mailbox make over
