3 Easy Ways to Spruce up Your Mailbox This Spring


It's that time of year - the sun is finally out of hibernation and things are starting to grow! I don't know about you, but my house needs plenty of TLC to be ready for front-porch sittin' and sweet tea sippin' come summertime.

I'm tackling several outdoor projects to up my home's curb appeal this month, but one of the simplest things I'm doing this spring is to spruce up my mailbox with a little elbow grease and simple, affordable, easy-to-apply vinyl decals.  It's usually the first thing anyone sees - and in my rural area, the only way address numbers are displayed.  You can never underestimate the power of a first impression, right?

Here are three easy ways to improve your home's curb appeal too by dressing up that lovely hardworking mailbox - she who receives a steady flow of online purchases (yay!), happy mail from friends and family (super yay!), and even monthly bills (less yay, for sure, but still valuable).

1. Weed, Trim, Clean up


Remember, the mailbox is the first thing visitors see and sets the tone for your whole home's curb appeal.  Keep her neat and tidy by pulling up the weeds, trimming the grass, and if by chance you've got a chronic litter problem (speaking from experience here, sigh), keep that trash picked up.

Less than a minute pulling weeds here and there as you go to pick up the mail each day will make a big difference.

2. Plant Flowers


Spring is the perfect time to add a little color to your mailbox.  Clear out an area around it, however large or small works for your space and time.  Then plant with anything from wildflower seeds (such a pretty assortment of color and heights) to petunias or marigolds (bright and happy colors) or hostas (lots of big, bushy, vibrant greenery).

Even a small burst of color (green or otherwise) goes a long way to welcoming guests and making your space lovely and inviting. I went for petunias this year in bright and happy white and red.

3. Add a Mailbox Decal


In my area, the mailbox is also the address marker for our home and so my address number needs to be big and easy to read. But that doesn't mean it shouldn't also be beautiful!

Perhaps you thought that vinyl decals for the wall wouldn't work on a mailbox? Not so! Vinyl decals are the perfect complement and come in a myriad of colors and styles to complement your home's style and your own personality.

Add your last name and monogram to the mailbox for a lovely traditional touch, or bright colored hexagons and circles for a modern flair. Add floral or tree designs for a natural style or something elegant and sophisticated to set the tone. You can even design your own decal for the perfect custom touch.

Even if all you need are the address numbers, make them pretty!

Wallquotes.com has a stunning collection of custom mailbox decals to help you make your mailbox stand out in the neighborhood and spruce up your whole home's curb appeal. And if by chance you don't see what you'd like in our collections, please contact us! We'd be delighted to create a special custom decal just for you and your home.

Here's to great first impressions and one project closer to the front-porch-sittin' summertime.

We just love a good nursery with a great quote. Our Design Team worked with Kaleigh to create this custom design in the perfect fonts for her little one's room. The size is large and looks great right above this changing area.

We love inspiring kids to read, and it looks like Lauren does too! This is such a great book shelf - I love that you see the covers of the book first - great for little ones and there are so many great illustrations. Your book storage becomes a work of art!

Lauren ordered our On The Night You Were Born Wall Quotes™ Decal in the largest 22" tall x 37" wide size, and hers is in our Slate color - a lovely dark gray. 

This decal would look great above your reading area in your little's room, playroom, or classroom!

Who else has a dog that thinks the world of them? Linda has a Shih Tzu and a Maltese (see them at the top of the stairs - so cute!) but also works as a dog sitter in her home. She has this wall that is right inside the door and is the first thing visitors see and wanted something fun and inspirational for them. 

We worked though some design options for her and she settled on this great design in White. It is perfect for an entryway since it doesn't stick out so wagging tails won't knock it off the wall!
