Our house number was barely visible from the street. The actual numbers were brass and over the years had tarnished. The natural wood they were mounted on
had also faded badly.
I took down the wood, sanded it and gave it 3 coats of paint. I scrubbed the numbers with a brass cleaner until they started to gleam.
I realize that this is not a complicated project because some of you are real DIY divas....but I am very proud of the result and especially since DH is away, it will be a pleasant surprise for him when he comes back. One less thing for him to do.
Here is the before....
