Vintage Mail Box - It's A Chalkboard!

Philemon 1:21

Is there anything that can't be made into a Chalkboard?

This summer I picked up this Vintage metal Mailbox at a yard sale, it's been sitting in my "stash" ever since. So I decided it was time to put some paint to it!
After I gave it a coat of Black paint, I thought... sometimes I do that...

Maybe it would look cute, painted with Chalkboard Paint, so you could write messages on it

Most of the time these wall mailboxes on a covered porch, or even just used for display inside, so I went for it!

How cute would it be to leave messages for your mailman!

Super Easy Project just used Spray Chalkboard paint, about 3 coats over the base coat of Flat Black

Then painted the front Medallion White, and distressed the whole thing to give it a more aged look

I then "Cured" it, This is an important step, all you need to do is take the side of a piece of chalk and color in all the areas that will be used as a chalkboard. First run the chalk Horizontal, the vertical, and wipe it off. I did this several times. If you don't "cure" it, the first things you write will never go away completely.

Let me know if you have any questions...
