Gypsy Teal

Weekend project:
  • Repaint mailbox and make it cute
  • Add a splash of color to this Southwest house
            Check & Check!

Remember when Valspar did their free sample giveaway? I was able to get a little gypsy teal from the deal. 

Isn't is Gorgeous?!

You may [or may not] remember me using it on my little tray :

I actually used the same swirly design concept when updating the boring black mailbox:

step 1: freshen up the sun faded mailbox with a fresh coat of black spray paint
step 2: come up with [or reuse] a design idea
step 3: after painting it black & waiting for it to dry, I drew my design on with a pencil then painted it on
step 4: use a clear coat spray paint to protect my little work of art

Also used the Gypsy Teal to refresh the boring blah house number sign:


ah, much better


  1. That color is great, I love how it pops on the mailbox and the house number sign. It makes me wish I had a mailbox that I could spruce up!

  2. SO pretty! Would LOVE it if you would link this up at my turquoise lovin' party going on right now!

  5. I am obsessed with this color!!! I just painted a side table this color for our living room! SO pretty, makes your house number pop:)
