It’s the little things we overlook that can sometimes make the biggest impact.
Take for instance this mailbox.
The stone is a very nice touch, but what’s up with that raggedy green mailbox?
It’s kinda beat, faded, and well, kinda sad looking.

What’s cool about little projects like this is that it shows how a little love goes a long way. We can do minor improvements around the house that make a huge impact.
For this project all Katie from Bower Power used is Frog Tape, Rustoleum Spraypaint, and some paper!
As you can see the numbers were so old and worn, they definitely needed to be removed. With some “De-Solv-it” a straight razor Katie removed the letters and other gunk off the front of the mailbox.
Without the stickers, it’s still kind of sad, but starting to look better.
Using frog tape she taped off all the stone around the mailbox. Repainting the mailbox is a great way to revamp a mailbox that’s a more permanent attachment like this mailbox, which is cemented into the pillar. It’s better to use extra tape and extra paper to protect the stone, than not enough. So protect those stones!

Kind of amazing, right?
I love how simple and classy the final product is. I also love how little home improvements make such an impact and can really transform certain areas of the home.
