Last month, I decided to do the 'D'Souza Thing' and cut my own numbers based on a font that I downloaded from 'dafont.com'. I cut them on the scroll saw from 3/4" Baltic Birch Ply. I then painted the numbers, electric outlet covers and mailbox in Rustoleum's "Heirloom White"
The numbers stand 1" proud of the wall. Clear silicone caulk and threaded inserts hold them in place.
I got what I wanted, at a fantastic price, and I think that it looks great!!!
