Project Post 25: House Number Plaque

On a few occasions, my UPS and FedEX guys have commented that I'm suppose to have house numbers visible on my house. They are very visible on both sides of my mailbox, which is right next to what is unquestionably my driveway, but apparently they are suppose to be on my house too. So when I saw this post, I knew that's what I wanted to make. Here is my version:

{Wood plaque from Home Depot - Minwax Dark Walnut stain}

{House numbers from Home Depot}

{I applied one coat of stain, and blotted some off with a damp rag. After it dried, I applied a coat of polyurethane to keep it looking decent out in the elements.}

I painted the numbers a mustard color that I had leftover from this project. I put a little screw-in eye hook that I had on hand in the bottom to hang wreaths, signs, etc. on it. I like how this turned out! Mission accomplished.
