Our old mailbox had some personality. Unfortunately it wasn't quite our style and as you can see was falling apart.
When Mom and Jimmy came to visit a month ago the Saturday project for the guys was to work on the mailbox.
They got it to this point but it was my job to pick out a paint color. It only took me a month :) It was a hard choice because we have intentions of painting the house some day and it will be a slightly different color. So I didn't want to match the mailbox to the house exactly. I finally decided on a color to paint the house, which in turn helped me pick the mailbox color. Okay, too much typing, here it is...
As you can see it's a warmer darker gray- it has more green undertones than red. It's one shade darker than we plan to paint the house but the color is really growing on me so we'll see!
