It’s funny how you can live with so many small details about your house just because they aren’t offensive to the eye, and then suddenly you can’t stand them anymore.
I was never crazy about the black and white plastic plaque hanging on the front of our house, but it wasn’t that bad. Sure, I’d twitch a little bit every time I noticed the 2 was ever-so-slightly leaning to the left. But overall, it could have been much worse. So I left it alone.
I was cruising Pinterest one day looking for front porch inspiration and I saw a house number plaque so beautiful it stopped me mid-scroll. It was a set of modern, brushed nickel numbers attached to a background of stained wood. Completely simple and yet totally perfect.
I investigated our dingy plastic plaque and decided it would be easy to remove and I could reuse the same screw holes — drilling holes into the siding isn’t something I want to tackle. So I made a trip to the home improvement store and started looking at the number options.
