Summer is in the air and that means it’s time to splash around in the sun, have a few great barbecues, and dress in your summer best. You may feel the need to do some decorating, but how about just giving your mailbox a little makeover?
The Tulsa movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage have seen a lot of mailboxes in our days of moving people to Tulsa, and we have a few tips for anyone new to the area on how to decorate your mailbox.
New Mailbox or DIY
Is your mailbox in such bad shape that you need to start over, or is your other mailbox still in good shape? If your mailbox is made of wood, you might want to check for rot and replace the post. For the rest of it, some sand paper, primer, and a new coat of paint can do wonders.
Summer Colors for Summer Fun
Regarding how to decorate your mailbox, never underestimate the power of a little color. Go for lighter hues and try some yellows and oranges for a nice bright look. You can always change the color again whenever you want, so don’t feel obligated to choose a color that you have to stick to. You change, life changes, and you might even move to a new home; if you do, you know which Tulsa movers to call!
If you are looking for a fun and quick summer project, why not teach your kids how to decorate your mailbox? You could try the classic look where you make the mailbox look like a smaller version of your house, or you could get creative and re-purpose some old furniture that your Tulsa movers unpacked. Give that old, tired lamp or spice rack new life and a new purpose as your mailbox!
