Curb appeal -- you hear that phrase all the time, particularly in regard to real estate sales; it refers, of course, to the view the front of your home appears to those driving by. If your home is not on the market, but you want to easily improve the appearance of it, and you aren't in the market for a new mailbox, try a mailbox cover. Sometimes called mailbox wallpapers, they are easily applied (and removed, for a seasonal look) and available in a huge variety of colors and backgrounds. Designed for both metallic, and wooden, mailboxes, they provide inexpensive entrance artwork.
Take, for example, this MailWraps Garden Bird House Mail Box Cover ($18); fitting a standard metal mailbox, this mail box cover attaches with magnetic strips so it may be changed to reflect the season. The cover is screen-printed and vinyl-covered for long-lasting coloring and resistance to the weather.
As an example of the variety of seasonal mailbox covers available, this Three Jack Stack Magnetic Mailbox Cover ($18), also from MailWraps. Reusable, this cover arrives with a set of three large adhesive numerals to note your home address. It's a breeze to attach and remove, for the Halloween season, and will last you many a year.
Rounding out the calendar year, the Silk Hat Snowman ($12) from Mailbox Coverups. This magnetic mailbox cover features a familiar classic Winter holiday season character, with a top hat and scarf. The color-fast inks and vinyl cover will ensure many years of use; comes with anti-theft straps to inhibit those who might like this mailbox cover as much as you do.
