Yesterday I got our mail box painted, yes, it was a big deal, our mailbox was nasty! When we moved into this house 8 years ago I wanted a simple mailbox so I could paint it. I mean, I painted a Rufus Porter style painting on it. The mailbox was rusting so badly and it was time for a change. I just primed and painted it black this time, no biggie, but it sure looks nice!
(I covered the areas that I didn't want over spray on, I used spray paint for this job.)
(And I put tape on small areas to keep them from getting painted.)
That ought to last a couple of years:)
It was so nice out yesterday that I also got a good coat of Spar Varnish on the grand kid's picnic table.
I want to protect the artwork that they did on it, I love how they painted it!
It's got some chippiness going on, but I like chippy things! To me it's a true piece of art.
