#1905Cottage – New Address Plaque!!


new house numbers

 I added a new Address Plaque to the 1905 Cottage.

I just love the way it looks by the front door!!  Here’s how I created the Address Plaque:

heaven boy

I used a design called “Heaven Boy” from Shutterfly.

Instead of photos, I used several placements of a plain, dark grey image and then adjusted the colors of the center, raised piece. I chose the font I wanted for the center piece — normally for a name or saying — and increased the font size as large as I could. I love the result!

And I love the polka dots too!! They are added automatically through this design.

My house numbers sign is hung under a porch, which keeps it out of the elements. But just in case, I also sprayed it with an outdoor polyurethane spraypaint to protect it from the elements.

  2. Elizabeth Gross says:

    any chance you’d be interested in replicating that house signage for sale (to me)? I’d love to have exactly the same signage. please let me know.

  3. My house was built in 1910. I love the charm of an old house! =)

  7. I have to admit, there is nothing like a clearly legible house number. Not for the owners, but the visitors. That has always been a pet peeve, when I am unsure if your house is 1905 or not. Yours is classy and beautiful!
