So FH decided that he loves the idea of the mailbox cardbox so that’s what we’re doing. I bought a white, metal mailbox today at home depot. I don’t want to wreck this thing when I try to paint it.
Any advice, tips or tricks are very welcome!
(we’re planning on doing our initials – we’re using a ‘logo’ I’ve designed a few places throughout the wedding.

TwoStatesBride: did you do anything before applying the paint? The instructions online are all over the place – some say it has to be sanded, other that you need to use a special primer.
