Give the front of your house a bright and cheery update with this Craft Of The Day. This creative address plate was inspired by a similar style blogger Janel Hutton of Hating Martha saw at Anthropologie. A little bit of paint is all you need to recreate the look for much less (you can buy plastic address numbers for $2 each at the hardware store). Not only does the fun plaque stand out from the street, it adds just the right amount of colorful curb appeal. Keep reading for the how-to.
