Make Modern Industrial House Numbers Using Stainless Steel Screws

Visible house numbers aren't just for looks — they're an important safety feature that every home should have in case of fire or emergency. (Plus, you don't want to miss any packages). Here's a DIY set of house numbers that will give your home an industrial chic look.

Buying off the shelf house numbers can be frustrating, since there aren't many options at the big box retailers and buying online can be dicey without seeing them in person.

Instead, you can make a set of numbers with stainless steel screws and the pattern of your choice. You'll need a powered screwdriver or drill/driver, square bit, hammer, and box or two of #8 stainless steel 1 5/8" screws.

Find a set of numbers you like and use Photoshop or some other editing program to set up your grid. Then position your grid to the location you want your numbers, either directly on your house or a back board.

    You could have neon flashing lights, and you'd still get a 'Sorry, but we missed you" note in your letterbox.

    That many large screws would properly cost more than buying a number.
