House Numbers {Makeover}

I know I have a picture of what the house numbers looked like when we bought the house... I will find it and add it later. But it was bad, I think one of the numbers was missing.
My Mom bought herself some of these house numbers, and I thought they were pretty cute, so I grabbed some too {Hobby Lobby} they were $2.99 each, 50% off! {3 mos ago}
I bought this frame at an auction, I bid on a whole box of {crap} only paid $2.50 because no one bid against me! Anyway the frame was in the box, amongst other fun treasures I will share with you shortly.
I always have left over bead board from some project, so I had my hubs cut it to the size of the frame.
I painted the bead board the same color as my front door, and hot glued it to the frame.. Then I cut the ribbon off the numbers and glued them to the bead board. (I used e6000)

FINALLY I got it hung up on my house! 
{We have owned the house since June, and trying to tell anyone where you live without house numbers is a bit of a challenge} 
I always tell people to look for the YELLOW MAILBOX!
But now people can find me!! YAY!

Linking UP!

Your address sign really turn out great. Love "framing" them. Looks so pretty. Like the style of the numbers and the frame is so pretty. Great job, now everyone will be able to find you. I would of looked for the yellow mailbox - that would be pretty easy to spot. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday’s Best.
