I originally saw this idea on Offbeat Home a while back. I wasn't able to find any specific tutorials on how to make the threaded house numbers online, so I figured it out as I went along. Here's how you can make your own industrial house numbers.

This week's home tour is a my special Halloween gift to y'all — a haunted house in a de-commissioned B&B in Seattle. It's all decked out the way you'd hope a haunted house would be — antique child's coffin coffee table, antique Halloween goods, metaphysical library, "haunted" ventriloquist dolls, and even snakes abound in this house.
I recently went to the open house for this adorable Robert Byrd-style cottage built in 1955 and kept in incredible original condition tucked away in the Hollywood Hills. There are wonderful little vintage surprises all over this amazing home. Hidden lazy Susans in an unexpected location, beyond unusual doorframes, and the coolest/most dangerous bathtub I've ever seen.
Beretta Fleur is finally showing us the space where she hosts ALL her perfectly-hosted parties. And it's wood-paneled and has built-in rock hot tubs and a lovely bar and let's all go to there for a party!
In the recent foreclosure crisis in the United States, a disproportionate amount of women and racial minorities were the victims of subprime loans and mortgages with adjustable interest rates — statistics that speak to inequality in housing. For Anita Hill, there is a "sense of belonging that comes from being at home" – so what happens when one is without a home? Reimagining Equality reveals that these biases are historic in the American construction of what "home" means.
I spend a good deal of time imagining what life would be like after the end of the world. You know, assuming I survive. I LOVEEEEEE all things post-apocalyptic: World War Z, On the Beach, The Road, Z for Zachariah. After I found this photo on Kitschy Living, I started daydreaming about what happens to a theme park after all things end. Think of the craziness of the houses we could occupy!
I called my husband and told him, "Oh shit, we bought a house." He said, "Okay, we need to sit down tonight and make a list…" A list of what? He owned a house well before I met him so he's gone through this before; but we've been together seven years now, which means that house was long long ago and what to prepare for was a distant memory.
What I need is a checklist — and I don't mean things like get an inspection and such because that's been done. We've got a house that we need to prepare to move in to, so what do we need to do? I mean, I get the change of address to the USPS and the utilities, pack, get a rental truck for the small stuff and price movers for the furniture but what else is there?
