So, I found a style of house numbers that I liked at Home Depot for pretty cheap, but I have brick exterior and didn't want to just stick them to the wall. I looked for a plaque or something similar to mount them on, but everything commercially available looked cheap and tacky, and remember, we're going for unique. Then I remembered that chunk of Lexan sitting at home in my garage...
Check out step five for a description & pictures of my second attempt at the project which is, in my opinion, a huge improvement over the original.
Step 1: Stuff You'll Need
Drill (or drill press)
Assorted Drill Bits
Orbital Sander w/ 150 & 220 grit sand paper*
Saw (just to cut the lexan to size. I used a jigsaw, but a table saw would work much better.)
*You may be able to sand this by hand, but the orbital sander would give you a much more uniform finish.
A piece of Lexan
#10 Lead Shields x 4
#10 2 1/2" Screws x 4
And off we go...
