License Plate Address Sign

I started making purses out of license plates about 5 years ago and ever since then people have been giving me their license plates.  A lot of them were not purse worthy and were just collecting dust. I was about ready to get rid of them but I knew I would use them someday.  Well that someday came and I used them to make a address sign for the front of our house.

I started out with a piece of plywood and attached 9 license plates to it with screws. I them spray painted them turquoise. I then took scrap pieces of metal tubing (from my day job of making exhaust pipes for go karts) and welded them together to form my house numbers. (Yes, I welded them myself)  I painted them green and attached them from the back.  

It turned out way better than I had envisioned, always love it when that happens!
