Arts & Crafts-style address numbers add instant style to a bungalow entryway.

Use a tape measure to space evenly, and duct or masking tape to test placement on the wall. (Remember that the taller the numbers, the larger the space they’ll need between them to look right.) Double-check the placement before picking up the drill. If your building is masonry, always use concrete screws, and put them into mortar, not bricks.
