The no exact size for how big your house number sign should be. It really depends on where you plan on hanging it. And what size your numbers are going to be.

You should start by sanding the board. This will smooth out any rough patches it might have.

After you sand the board wipe it off good. We don’t want there to be little wood shavings that will get stuck in your paint or stain.
