House Numbers

Numbering Your House in Style

Attic mag did a really interesting post today about numbering your house in a creative way. 
Please go there and see the great ideas for displaying your home's address. 


I thought I'd share my own house numbers. I created this from a plaque I found in the garden stuff at Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago. I have no idea what it was intended for originally, but when I saw it...I knew I could somehow add house numbers to it. I bought metal numbers at Ace Hardware and glued them on with all weather adhesive. 




See how it accents the pole just perfectly?

Your house number look great, very traditional for a traditional house. But I can kinda see the numbers painted a soft turquoise.

I love the house number plaque you created. Thanks for coming by my blog. The bowls were bought at a local home decor store. It is not a franchise. We love Nissans and have owned a few Maximas between us and our daughter. My husband has a GM discount he can use is why he is going with a GM car. He has had many Tahoes and then the Traverse. Switching to Buick this time it looks like. American cars have come a long way because they are finally taking their cues from the European and Asian markets.
