As part of our labor day weekend bonanza of projects, Rob and I finally completed our house number plaque. Yay!
After purchasing the numbers at home depot, we were inspired to build a plexi-glass plaque after seeing this blog post on Apartment Therapy about etsy seller Modplexi making mod address plaques from similarly-styled numbers on a plexi-glass plaques. But $125 was not in our house number budget. We had already spent about $20 on the numbers at Home Depot and with an additional $15.00 we finished the project up. I bought an 8″ x 18″ piece of 1/4″ thick plexi from a local glass company. We painted the reverse of the glass the same brilliant turquoise that we painted our door (Emerald Coast by Behr) and devised a float-mounting system using some bolts and nuts (since the included hardware wouldn’t work for our purposes).
