Mailbox makeover with an Eye Level Gray Cast Stone Mailbox Post (180.00) from Lowe's. Install it over a wooden post. Use QuickCrete in the post hole
Get the look of a copper mailbox by spray painting it with Rust-Oleum Metallic Spray in Copper (post is painted with black satin exterior paint). Can also use Martha Stewart Copper Liquid Gilding that has actual copper in it, so it will develop an aged patina over time.
