We replaced our mailbox... this thing was sad looking!
Matt happily removed the top... so dramatic
And... we were left with this medal post...
Rusty AND very dirty!
So my cute Hubby ran to Home Depot for me and picked up a new grinding plate
and installed it so that we could remove all of the rust and grime from the mailbox post
Matt taught me how to use the grinder...
And I took over... Yes! I am grinding in a dress, leggings, and running shoes. DIY isn't always a pretty thing! I typically just add on some shoes and wear whatever I'm already in that day. This is why I end up getting paint all over everything!
After Matt taking over to finish the job... It was HARD WORK! the post didn't look very pretty but it was smooth!
Let the painting begin! I used Rust-Oleum black spray paint that it meant for the outdoors.
Looking better already...
Matt installed our numbers!!!
I finished up the project by planting a few little flowers on the base of the mailbox!
A little side by side for you... MUCH BETTER
While I had the spray paint out I decided to also give this lamp in our yard a little love...
It needed it... Here is a close up...
Three Minutes Later!!! AHHH I love spray paint!
