The utility company won't allow painting the meter face (for good reason!), but the rest of the box is open territory. I haven't decided whether to paint the cable box or just have Charter come remove their equipment, since we don't have cable, dish, etc.
While I had the paintbrush wet, I decided to do a little faux finishing on the front, too. The lattice-work brick on the porch had collapsed some time in the past, and the repair job was less than professional. Gobs of cement were smeared on the face of the brick and the mortar lines were thick, clumsy, and unattractive. I used matching paint to clean up the facade as best I could. Not perfect, but better.
