1. Paint your door a fun bright color.
2. Add Shutters
3. Have a fun way to display your house numbers.
So after contemplating each of them I decided that #3 was the way for me.
1 lenght of Pine. 2x8
long rectangel brackets to secure boards together
Paint colors of choice
numbers for my house
I started with 1 length of pine. I cut it into lengths of 18 inches. I ended up with 5 lengths with a few inches left.
Next I spray painted my numbers black. And sprayed my boards my color of choice. I went with turquoise, burnt orange and white. I did a light coat, to let the wood grain show through a bit.
Sand your boards just a bit, if you like for a bit of a weathered look.
Lay your dry boards together how you want them. Flip them over and screw your bracket into place.
Once my brackets were secure I flipped my boards back over. I placed my numbers where I waanted them and screwed them into place.
I added this frame so I could leave messages for visitors coming in. Sleeping baby please knock, Leave packages at the door or Welcome friends. Lots of options for this little frame.
So I found the frame at TJMaxx. I sprayed it my favorite color (Turquoise) and took out the glass. I cut a piece of chalk board vinyl I got from Pick Your Plum and placed it inside the frame. I added the glass behind it and a piece of card board. Took the back of the frame off. It had a back with a stand on it that you could see if was on.
I used 4 nails ot hang the frame on and keep it from moving.
Hang your numbers outside your door and enjoy. I love the pop of color it adds to my front porch.
Do you see the nest on my front door wreath? I made the wreath and hung it back in April. Within 2 days a cute little Mama Robin began building her nest. She worked on it for a week. Then abandoned it because there was so much traffic. Everyone askes me where I got the nest. They can't believe a bird built it. Someday I will take it down and save it for someplace special.
Thanks for sharing your Free Time with me. Have a great week.
