DIY: Painted House Numbers

Michelle Slatalla June 09, 2016

House numbers have their own personality–and say something about yours. When we saw this easy DIY painted house numbers project by Jones Design, we immediately started dreaming about fonts. (If you get sick of a typeface, you can just paint over it.)

For step-by-step instructions, see Jones Design.
