Mailbox Makeovers Boost Curb Appeal – DIY

If you think of your house as being a “face” then your mailbox would be the nose. A very prominent feature of your home and can either add to or take away from your ‘curb appeal.’

With that in mind, let’s talk mailboxes for a moment.

NOTE: Before you get too deep into this conversation, check with your postal carrier or local post office to be sure of any regulations that might need to be respected, along with any Home Owners Associations that you might be a member of. You’d hate to spent energy and money upgrading your mailbox only to have to take it down.
