We were looking for a way to save money on modern standoff house numbers (which can cost up to $50 per number online).
We decided to use what we already had left over after our project, a half empty box of screws!
The beauty of this project is it can be installed anywhere, by anyone and your numbers can be done in whatever font, style and color that best fits your home!
Step 1: Materials and Tools
All you need to get started is:
- a driver (handheld screwdriver works fine, but a power driver will make quicker work)
- a box of stainless steel/exterior screws (i used number 8 at 1 5/8")
- a printed set of numbers to use as a template (more on this in the next step)
- a hammer, rock or blunt object to tap the screws.
