I love my front porch. It’s not super big, you really can’t sit on it, but it’s covered and holds lots of plants and seasonal decorations.  

Next to my front door is a blank wall just begging for something.  I’ve decided it needs house numbers.  Currently we have standard black and white numbers tacked up over our garage.  So boring, and tiny, it’s hard to see from the road.

Before I go buy some fancy numbers at the hardware store, I thought I would poll my fellow bloggers and dig through Pinterest for some inspiration.  And wouldn’t you know I found some amazing and creative DIY house numbers.  

I am so excited to get started on my own project before winter arrives.

Rain Boots on the door

Refresh Restyle made these cute rainboots for her front door, but I can’t get past the numbers. I love the simplicity of placing them right on the door.

 Another simple way to display house numbers is next to the front door. My porch is very similar and there is just enough room for 2 maybe 3 numbers here.

Old milk can turned address marker from Art is Beauty. Another great way to incorporate design into the house numbers.

I ended up creating a sign using wood numbers and black adn silver paint. I was so inspried by this collection and wanted to create something that stood out yet blended with my front porch.
