How to Create a Unique Address Number Board

Lightly sand the unfinished wood sign with #180 grit sandpaper and remove sanding dust.

With a lint-free cloth, generously apply Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain and let it sit for 2-3 minutes, based on the richness of color you prefer.

Wipe off excess stain in the direction of the wood grain with a clean, lint-free cloth and let the wood stain dry for 1 hour.

Following the instructions on the can, apply Varathane Spar Urethane in light coats for added durability and protection.

One Day Paint Projects Address Board For Home

Paint the planter and numbers with Stops Rust Metallic Spray Paint. Follow the instructions on the spray paint can. Shake the can for one minute after the mixing ball releases.

Hold your can of spray paint 8-12″ from the surface and apply light coats of spray paint, waiting a few minutes between each coat to ensure even coverage.
