Curb Appeal Updates

I finally found a mailbox I love and exterior shutters for our house. We ordered our shutters from Home Depot (they were much more helpful than Lowe's!). After doing some online research I decided on black Raised Panel shutters. I love the new look of our house! Another future project will be painting our front door from white to a color, which I haven't yet decided.

 My father-in-law doing most of the work:
 One side done:
 Opposite side completed:
 Love the new look!

We got our new mailbox at a hardware store for $45. It came with attachable magazine hooks, but I chose to skip them because the width allows all our mail to fit.

The stone made it difficult to center our mailbox evenly under the address plate. So, my husband got creative and spray painted a piece of wood to be drilled into the stone exactly where we wanted our mailbox.

Possible door colors: Hunter green, blue/gray, navy, maroon. I want something different than the common cherry red. This will probably be a summer project so I have time to decide on a color.
