Cute House Numbers

Well now that it's over, I can officially share that we had a SURPRISE 20th Birthday Party for my sister! It was so awesome! All the hard work leading up to Saturday paid off, and she was absolutely surprised.

 I must admit, I am SO glad that it's over and we can REST now. LOL!

I realized after I posted pics of my haircut how rushed I was and the pictures REALLY showed that, but I just had to share! I'll try to get better pics this week :)

Here's a little something I whipped together this past week! I got the idea from the LOVELY Michell over at Girl In Air, and I loved it so much, that I knew I just HAD to do it! My numbers were the dull silver ones from walmart that they threw up there before trying to sell the house, and you could barely see them.

So I picked up two scrap pieces of MDF from Home Depot for $1.02...

Cut one of the pieces into squares 
Painted them white
Spray painted my old numbers
Picked up some stars from Michael's and painted them...

 And here's the results!




 Love them now! So cheap, so simple and so cute!
