DIY Address Post

Our farmhouse sits quite a ways back from the road, so I needed a way to put our address numbers near the beginning of our driveway where they could be better seen. This address post fits the bill perfectly!
Plus it has a place to hang a pretty flower basket to add some extra curb appeal.
We began by digging the hole and setting the post in concrete.
We then painted the post. Exterior oil paint is probably the best to use for this project, but we only had white primer on hand, so we went with it. Two years later, it still looks great.
Next we screwed the address numbers onto the post. We have a set of numbers on each side. Then we secured the planter hanger to the front and the solar light cap to the top. The grass finally filled in and we later added a small flower garden around the post. Check out the full tutorial and supply list on my blog!

    Just a suggestion. The 4x4 could be covered with a binyl sleeve. No painting ever and great protection.

    Did you use a pressure treated post? I didn't know if the paint would stick if so.. I love this and want to give it a try!
