Spray Paint: Better than sliced bread?

Our mailbox is a snoozefest. Mr. Man picked it out the first weekend we moved in, and it was so boring I didn't even notice we had a new one for a week or so. Sometime ago I had spied a gorgeous, simple black one at some fancy store with a hefty pricetag. Last week I got sick of my boring mailbox and decided to make it over as a cheap imitation of the one I saw.
Total Cost $3.42 for Spray Paint, Small wood plaque, and vinyl lettering from an awesome lady who ships anywhere and is super reasonable! (email me for the source) I ripped off the "hangy things" and the metal piece. And then gave it a British Nod by putting the word "Post" on it, just like the one I saw.
Then while I was in the garage inhaling fumes, I pulled this Star out from my "Project Bin". I scored it for $1 on clearance. The rusted look doesn't work with my house, but I knew it had potential. (Also, check out my favorite shoes of the summer.) So I spray painted it white and popped it on the Garden House. Totally worth it!
