Getting Through Summer - One Project at a Time

Remember this?  Mick brought me this vintage mailbox when he visited back in May.  I've been looking for a vintage one with paper hooks, but it was a difficult search.

Well, after some time with a wire brush, some tape and a couple of cans of spray paint (two colors), it now looks like this!

It still needs a little touch-up on the eagle, and the lid needs to be lightly sanded and given a finish coat.  Still, I like the way it turned out!  Krylon makes a green spray paint that perfectly matches the shutters on my house, so the cohesiveness with the colors is going to be great!
