1. Wood + Modern: Your numbers don’t necessarily have to go on your door. You can make them more visible by putting them on column on your porch. The contrasting wood backing makes them stand out even more. (via 4 Men 1 Lady)

3. Classic Painted Numbers: These house numbers were actually just painted on with a paint pen. You can stencil any typeface you want, and fill in the outlines with a contrasting paint color. (via It’s the Little Things)
