You Had Me At Hello {Mailbox Makeover}

  Once upon a time, there was a house. The people who lived there were nice & tried their very best to take care of the house. When they moved in, they bought it a shiny silver mailbox to wear. The house loved the mailbox & wore it with pride. 
  Over the years, the mailbox grew less & less shiny & it eventually started to rust. 

The little house looked a little sad wearing the rusty mailbox, so the owners decided to cheer up the house by fixing up the mailbox. They gave it a shiny coat of black spray paint & the lady of the house stencilled the word "hello" on the lid. 

  The house once again looked cheery & welcomed it's guests with a happy "Hello".

The End. :)

I'm so glad I finally got to this project! It's been awhile in coming, but I'm happy with the end result. 

The "hello" makes me smile whenever I get the mail. :)
