Before & After: From Blah To Yee Haw!

This before-and-after will have you slowly backing away from the number stickers from the hardware store. This example on an industrial building is a great example of how a small detail can pack a big punch.

We know address numbers can often be a last minute, or overlooked, detail. You may be tempted to pop into the hardware store and grab whatever they have so you can wrap your project up. Before you do, consider this before-and-after in Houston. This installation has us pulling on the reins for a double take, and a great reminder that even the smallest detail makes a big difference.
