With Valentine's Day approaching in a few weeks, I figured it was time for a little romantic project. I'm always looking for cute and creative ways to share my feelings with my husband. I decided to create a darling "love mailbox" to use as a spot to leave sweet love notes, chocolates, or other small romantic gifts. Here's how it turned out.
The mailbox was a dollar spot find at Target. They have them every year around Valentine's Day. I had always wanted to decorate one and this year I finally got around to it. It started out plain white with a red flag.
A little Heirloom White paint covered up that bright red flag. I don't have any red decor in the house and I wanted a softer look to the mailbox. My spray paint job isn't the best, but it was 20 degrees outside so I did the spray painting inside. I had to do it quick before Mr. Delightful Dwelling found out I was spray painting in the house! I used scrapbook paper, ribbon, and other embelishments that I already had. The heart shape was cut using my Cricut. That made the total cost of this project just one little dollar.
