My favorite kind of project too!

I come up with the Mid Century Modern-esque design…

And Jim did most of the work!

The Inspiration…

The Shutters that I designed and had made!

Next we picked the numbers…

We wanted brushed metal and ones that stand off the wall a bit…and we found them online!

Then we gathering wood scraps!

Wood = Check!

It is always a good idea to lay out the numbers!

Numbers in Position = Check!

The Colors!

From House Number Project

Although the house is white, light aqua blue and a pale-ish yellow…

The brush metal numbers would not “pop” on any of those colors.

So when we are in doubt, we always go to our favorite color…

ORANGE!

I painted…

And there you go…

The done numbers with the house!

He took out that wire and attached the numbers to the house!

Although it is not “perfect”, we did get thumbs ups from our neighbors!  

(I had to explain to Jim perfect is just a word.)

We love it!  

Now we need to find affordable Mid-Century Modern-esque cool outdoor lights to match…

And how to incorporate just a bit more orange outside too!
