We have lived in our house for almost 10 years now, so it was time to give our front porch a much-needed upgrade – And what better way to start than with planters and the house numbers.

I made these from sapele and canarywood which contrast really well and will hold up to the elements. Plus the canarywood is a nice complement to our front door. I used stopped double rabbets and stopped dados for the joinery so its definitely built to last. The upper planter box also has an inconspicuous hiding spot for those of you who lock yourself out of the house (you know who you are). It is also a really nice way to improve that curb appeal. And for those who are concerned, those are not my actual house numbers..
