New House Number

Thanks to Jen over @ Just for Rachel, we have a new house number!!  I showed hers to Charles and he gave me his usual response... "Neat."  He says it like he's not really paying attention, which seriously bugs me, but I went out to the garage an hour later and he'd made a plaque for our existing house number.  What a sweetie!  

I spray painted the plaque with a few coats of black and then sealed it.  Then painted our black number white.   

Our new house number really pops now and I love this so much, I wish I had at least four numbers in my address.  Maybe I could do our zip code???  Nah...

  1. You could do mine! It has 5 numbers! Heh. Great job! What a great hubby! :)

  2. That looks great! I am so happy to see my idea's being used, that's what makes my blog worth it! :). Have fun with your new house number. Good job to the hubby for making it!

  3. Ah, the strong silent type, huh? : ) I think that's great that he went and made it, and it looks great. I seriously need to fix my house numbers on my mailbox - the second number of my address is fading and it looks horrible.

  4. - Meg, I might have to take you up on that!!!
    - Jen, I love all of your stuff!! There may be more copies to come!! Esp that bench made from a headboard!
    - Kathy, we don't have our number on our mailbox right now. I'm still trying to decide how I want to tackle that.

  5. What a great addition to your home!
    Love it!

  6. That really stood out well. I couldn't help noticing the door on the right in the picture though. It looks great too.
