Altered Mailbox





Rainy Day in Maryland.

Its a good day to stay home and alter something!

I found this really neat mailbox at a local thrift store
for $2. I loved the scallop boarder around the top
of the mailbox.

Sorry the pics are so dark! One day I'll have a stamp studio
with lots of natural light....a girl can dream.

I painted the box Cherry Red (lowes) it matches SU cherry cobbler perfect.
Used Greenhouse Gala DSP (SU) to cover the middle of the box.
For the scallop I use the new SU die Tasteful Trim and
chocolate chip CS. Then used some crocheted flowers
from the same thrift store, made the leaves with a nestie die and matching DSP,
the pearls are from MM they were white and I needed cream so I colored them with
a light brown copic marker.

Hope everyone is have a great day!

Stay inky my friends!

Amanda, you are so creative! I have the mail box of exact same shape and size, so what do you think I did with mine? I spray painted it black, put silver self-adhisive numbers and it was done - sad-sad story.
Yours on another hand totally rocks!!! Great job on your project!
