A few weeks ago I finally got the urge to remedy this situation, so I began to look online to find the appropriate Mission/Craftsman style house numbers, and they had to be as inexpensive as possible too. What I found was a very limited selection. Either the numbers were extremely expensive, or they were too cheap. What to do? I was actually thinking of settling for the cheaply made metal/plastic numbers when my husband said something AMAzing!
"Why don't you paint the house numbers on some scrape wood left from that dog house we got a while back?"
I just stared at him in awe...the man's a genius! Yes! I would paint our house numbers onto a piece of wood from the free dog house scrap pile... I tell you dear reader, that thing just keeps on giving!
Not only would this project yield us a free set of house numbers, but they would be in any color and style I could think of! I set to search Google images for inspiration and found it in no time. An all copper background with some simple numbers, this is what Robert and I agreed upon, but of course I had to jazz it up a bit, and give it a bit more
