I updated my mailbox using paint and vinyl numbers.
I got so excited to “fix” our mailbox, that I forgot to take a before picture. Basically the mailbox was in great condition, but it had old numbers that had seen better days. They were the sticker numbers with a white background. And they looked something like this (only they weren’t this straight).
First, I spray painted (with white paint) the section of the mailbox where the numbers were going.
After it was good and dry (I should have waited longer, but I was worried the HOA would come after me for painting my mailbox white). I added the *vinyl numbers and painted the entire mailbox black.
*Vinyl does will not last forever outdoors. It will eventually peel – especially in the hot sun. This is why I use the vinyl as stencils. Paint is much more permanent.
Then, once the black paint dried, I carefully removed the vinyl numbers.
And my mailbox now looks like new!
You can find these vinyl numbers on Etsy. I bought mine from Its A Sticky Situation.
