Ok, having worked in lawn enforcement, I can bring some truth to this. The mail box is owned by you. The USPS does not own it. I can tell you this because I have dealt with many, many cases involving damage to mailboxes. It is ONLY and federal offense if a mailbox is damaged or destroyed WHILE mail was inside. If no mail was inside, the charge is then considered simple property damage, and is covered under state and local laws for such acts. Many people assume that what others have said about the situation, or what others have been told, is the law. It is not. The mailbox is yours and if you want to remove it, paint it, etc, it is your right to do so. The only reason people get confused about this topic is because the postal service reserves the right to only drop off mail in designated areas. For instance, it wouldn't be against the law to move your mailbox from the street to your front door. The only problem you may encounter is the mail man may not deliver your mail to your door, instead he may only be able to deliver it to the box at the street. Different states and cities may have different ordinances as to where you may place your mailbox, but I can assure you that the federal laws have no ownership to your mailbox itself.
