Address signs were posted online today so I'm adding mine...

My sign is a painted shovel with the handle inside of a tiki light holder. I used regular street numbers from DIY store.
Put out about 5 years ago
weathered well for 5 years without touch-ups
Tiki light holder has the broken shovel handle
My mailbox in full bloom with address sign.

      It is a regular mailbox that my husband covered with found materials. The tin roof is just that a piece of tin I found, he used wooden shingles to cover it, I bought the wooden fence from Michaels, and painted small pieces of wood to look like darkened windows.
      He also made the backdrop from wooden shingles and wooden lattice. It is about 10 years old in this picture.

      Hope my answer helps
