The duration for a homeowner, low volume contractor (volume of paint purchased) will be about $50.00 or almost exactly what your mail box cost less shipping and handling.

You could get into specialized plastic bondable paints, primers etc but I think you would get several years out of a-100 satin. about 22.00$

Hi, my name is Wes, I was just wondering if anyone knew a general price to charge for refinishing wood products such as cabinetry, bookshelves, furniture. I have a whole lot to do and it looks very time consuming. Usually I bid for my time, but I don't want to underbid the project or overbid it.

Since your mail box is plastic why not use the new Krylon spray bomb for plastic, why waste your money on sherly williams, two cans of Krylon and your good to go.:thumbsup:

That is the way i went. The krylon for plastic. I bought four cans. Only need two. I ended spraying it with about 10 coats.:laughing: Basically until i used up the second can. The other two cans i now have sitting in my utility room.:laughing: I looks brand new. For the record this was several months ago.
