Welcome guests to your home with a stylish, upcycled address sign. Just a few extra items and you can create this terrific front-stoop addition—bonus points for a planter extension.

Supplies:

  • 1 Trex decking sample board
  • House numbers
  • Screws
  • Piece of wood for the shelf (cedar or teak works best)
  • Small piece of wood for mounting
  • Paint
  • Sawtooth hook

Instructions:

  1. Lay out numbers.
  2. Screw each number onto the front of the deck board.
  3. Paint, stain or leave mini shelf au naturel.
  4. Screw a small piece of wood to the sample board as a mount for the mini shelf.
  5. Screw in the shelf from the top.
  6. Flip the board to its backside, attaching a sawtooth hook at its center for an even hang.
  7. Hang like a picture.
  8. For extra decor—add a little pot, your favorite gnome or gargoyle to your sign.
