I've already posted a few projects from my ongoing balcony upgrade project. I tuned up this old mailbox to use to store a few things that might come in handy out there.



It's spray painted with brown primer that I varnished with a matte sheen spray on the outside. On the inside it's copper spray paint to tie in with the copper-y furniture out there.



The "supplies" label (pictured, top) is made with ink-jet-friendly shrink plastic coated with triple think gloss glaze.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
