The little spot where we live gets people confused sometimes. It’s on the corner where two roads meet, and it throws people for a loop because the actual street our house sits on doesn’t seem to coincide with our address. So anytime we have a special delivery we know we’re going to have to flag down the lost driver.
Well, I mentioned here that our new neighbors gave us a whole bunch of tile they had left after some remodeling. And John decided to get super creative and use the tile make a tree sign with our house numbers.
He used a piece of leftover wood from our porch remodel, and stained it Minwax English Chestnut. Then he used a hammer to break up a square of tile.
Do you see where we’re going with this?!
Then he started forming our numbers with the little pieces of tile…
Isn’t it looking cool?
Then we added some color with some Dollar Tree mancala marbles. That’s what I call them, anyway. We screwed it into our big oak tree in the front yard. And there you have it! There’s a small sign on the ground with our address, but no one ever sees it, so we’ve compromised. And made a BIG sign!
Isn’t it fun?! The “4″ is a little hard to read, but I think you can still make it out.
John did such a good job with this! One impressed wife right here! Hopefully this will help prevent so many people from getting lost! It’s a pretty tree accessory, regardless.
