Ok so i bought this cute old mailbox off ebay and i love it but i’m not sure what to do. Here is the mail box
I tried painting it and it didn’t stick well i think i can prime it and paint it and make it stick better. But I’m not sure should i paint it white or blue should i antique it once i paint it or should i maybe I should paint it and then sand some spots so the metal will show i’ll just kind of stumped and need sujestions….Any one have an idea…..

Because it is sort of vintage looking already, dont antique it too much! 🙂 As it is metal, This is what I would do.. 🙂
Sand the whole thing down to the metal. use an exterior paint or tremclad in a robins egg blue. let that dry, then thin your white exterior latex paint and brush over that with a heavy hand, so you get the bristly look. Then use a light sandpaper to the edges, so a bit of the blue and metal come through.
