Mark House Number Placement
Hold each house number against its corresponding drawer, aligning it so the number is straight and centered. Mark the drawer by pressing the number stud or standoff into the paint to create a divot, or mark with a pencil. Remove the number, and put it back over the marks to ensure proper positioning.
Install House Numbers
Drill holes with a 3/16-inch drill bit through the drawer face in each of the locations marked in step 4 (Image 1). Put a piece of scrap wood over the number to protect its finish, and gently tap the house number into the newly drilled hole using a hammer (Image 2). Repeat the process until each of the drawers is complete (Image 3).
Bring bold pattern and a little bit of bling to an old dresser with decorative knobs and wallpapered drawers.
