How To | Modern Address Numbers & Outdoor Link Up

Yesterday I shared some pics of refreshing the front of my house.  I did a quick and cheap update to my address numbers that just makes me smile every time I pull into the garage!  Here is how I did it:

I measured out the already given lighted frame {I figured why mess with the patch job I would need to do and it already is lit... so just use that.}  I pulled out some extra paint sticks {free!!} and cut them down to size.

A quick stain from my supply cabinet {left over from my MCM Credenza Makeover... free again}

Since the plastic tiles that were existing were pretty thick I used another paint stick cut to fit to fill up the space.  Then I just placed the wood slats in the frame.  The last cut was about a 1/4" which I just cut with scissors. 

I purchased the numbers at The HD for less than $5 each.  Since I have such a sort address the whole project was less than $15!  My favorite sort of project!

Now it is your turn to link up your refreshed outdoor decor projects!
