I'm not sure if this is in the right section or not. I've recently moved to a new house, and the mailbox is in terrible condition. It's missing a flag and all banged up. My mother, for some strange reason, had a spare mailbox lying around in her garage. So now I have a nice mailbox, but it is very very blah. I'd like to do SOMETHING to it, but I am stumped. I can't seem to think of anything to do, other than paint it. My drawing and painting skills are severely lacking. I live in the Illinois and the winters get pretty cold here, and I don't know how things would stand up to the elements. Any suggestions?
