Krylon Painted Paint Stick Address Sign

I might be obsessed with these slim pieces of wood, especially at the cost of wood these days!.  There are just so many things you can do with them.  Since I inherited a box of paint sticks, anticipate more projects in the future.  Krylon asked me if I wanted to participate in a project featuring a color pallet of their choosing.  So they sent me two color pallets to use to create something summery.

 

 

Now, this certainly isn’t a color pallet I normally would lean towards.  But it does make a fun poppy outdoor address sign.

Since my builder basic plastic numbers weren’t doing my house any favors I figured adding some POP of color could certainly help.  I mean, after all, this is what I started with…

Supplies:

6 – 5 gallon paint sticks

wood glue

chop saw

tape measure and pencil

Krylon spray primer

spray paint (I used Rich Plum, Bright Idea, Shimmer Metallic Blue, and Jasper Natural Stone – no longer available, but this is similar, Charcoal Sand)

plastic address numbers

3M sanding sponge

thin nails

air nailer

1.  With my chop saw, I cut two paint sticks about 17” long.  Then I cut up 4 other paint sticks to 5” for a total of 12 sticks.  I sanded the sticks smooth so it would take the paint well.  Wipe dust.

2.  Next I spray primed all the wood pieces and the plastic numbers.

3.  Then I sprayed 4 of each 5” stick with the three different colors.

4.  The letters and the back 17” pieces got sprayed with the Krylon Natural Stone in Jasper.

5.  After dry I glued the 5” pieces onto the 17” pieces using nickels as spacers. Let it dry overnight.

6.  Using small nails, nail the numbers in place.

7.  I used a nail gun in the 4 corners to tack it in place using a level to make sure it is straight.

And now I have some Spring POP to my front porch.  Once I plant some flowers and my plants begin to bloom it is going to be gorgeous!
