House Numbers for Ugly Railing!

I hate my front railing as it is cheap rather than chic. So since I was trying to keep my mind off of my 5 year old being in kdg., I decided to try and pretty this thing up. I just used pallet wood that got a whitewash and then rusty numbers and some spray painted cable to make it look a little more vintage. really pretty easy!

    Honestly, I kind of like the look of the railing...sort of garden junkl chic...but with the numbers added, it blends in very nicely and looks much nicer.

    I've always hated those railings, too! I had them at my last house. Where were you with your clever and crafty house numbers back then?? LOL!!
