Here's an easy project to give your home some curb appeal. Remember, a mailbox is oftentimes the first impression for visitors and passerby, so what kind of statement would yours make? Using craft paint and stencils, your mailbox can be given a quick makeover to match the colors of your home, represent a house number, monogram, or family name.
