I got tired of getting my neighbors' packages and visitors. So I decided to make my own address plate for my front door. At the hardware store, I bought heavy 4" brass numbers and a cedar board. I sanded and painted the cedar board white, then I applied 1" square paint chips with Mod Podge. After many coats of Mod Podge, I sprayed the piece with an acrylic sealer to prevent it from being sticky. I carefully drilled holes for the numbers and screwed them into place, then I glued magnets onto the back to hold the address plate in place on my steel front door. My husband and I are pleased!

Gosh, I wouldn't have known those were paint chips if you hadn't mentioned it. At first glance I thought it was tiled. Very nice work!
