New Address Sign

Sometimes Plain Numbers are just Boring

Yes, when we moved in there were some conventional metal numbers fastened on to a wood strip. Boring, boring, boring! I went to Michael's and bought a wood plaque and sketched our street numbers on the board, in a style that would be reminiscent of Arts and Crafts (I do love an Arts and Crafts style "8"). I used Venetian Glass Tiles that I cut, and then glued them on the board, leaving gaps between them, to create the mosaic.

You can't see it here, but I also put Hematite stars into the background so there is some cool little glints that catch the light. Black grout was used to finish the piece.
