I repaint, repair or replace our mail boxes every few years. It was that time again so I ask my wife what color
she would like. Her answer was she didn’t care. As all men know, women do care. She doesn’t like the John Deere green and yellow. (All 3 houses are here on the farm)

Knowing she doesn’t like John deer green and yellow. you did it anyway. You are looking for trouble. Hahaha. It looks great anyway and it’s gonna be replaced again in a few years right? I hope she is a good sport!

Looks nice but if she doesn’t like it, you will pay.

I think the green and yellow is quite outstanding! Easy for the post guys to see when they’re coming around at the very least. But the fellas here are right, if your wife doesn’t like the colour of those post boxes, you better get moving to the nearest hardware store to get another colour of paint to do it right! Haha! Good luck!

Great design. Knowing my wife she would repaint it herself if she didn’t like it. That being said it is very cheerful.
Nice job.

Knowing my wife, if she didn’t like the colors, she would be the one to hit it with her car. Then the entire episode would be my fault for intaling the mailboxes there is the first place.

The design is outstanding and I think are great.

This is really cool! There are 3 different families living on your property that’s why you have 3 boxes for mail right? It must be nice to have your family living as a community in one place!

Yup, that is indeed very true! They do care and regardless of your colour choices, expect subsequent comments (or constructive criticisms as they phrase it) after your work is done.
