Which part of your house does anyone first see and notice? The house facade, of course! Even strangers simply passing by can see it. This is why designing and decorating it is just as important as any part of your home…

I think it’s safe to say that one of the usually overlooked detail in our facade is the house numbers. After all their sole purpose is to tell visitors that it is or is not the house they are looking for. But after coming across this project, I realized that this simple sign mounted on our facade can create a good impression.

This project is very simple and easy yet brilliant. It is creative and also a more secure sign that would survive a typhoon. (My old house number was destroyed by a strong one two years ago.)

Do you think it’s time to replace yours too? Here’s what you will need:

Materials


  • Screws – stainless steel/exterior
  • Printed House Number
  • Tape – for holding number template in place
  • Nails – for marking where screws will go


Tools


  • Hammer
  • Screwdriver – handheld is fine, but a power driver makes the work easier


Steps:

Choose your font. Use a software such as Photoshop to overlay a grid over the numbers. The intersecting points in the grid is where your screws will go, so the size of squares should depend on the size of the head of your screws.

Once you’ve printed your numbers, position the paper on your surface. Make sure they are  straight and nicely laid out before hammering the nails (you can also use one of the screws like in the photo). The goal for this step is to just mark where you will drill the screws.

After you have made marks for the numbers, carefully drill the screws. Sink them halfway only – just enough so that they will not fall out.
