DIY Home Address Rock Sign

5 Materials
1 Hour

Today I want to show you how EASY it can be to personalize a rock outside your home so that people visiting can easily identify your address. This DIY Home Address Rock makeover is so simple, you just need some paint, a stencil, and a paintbrush!!

I started by weed walking around the rock, cleaning it off with water, and letting it dry.

Next I used my HomeRight Finish Max Paint Sprayer and white paint to spray the rock and give it a good base coat. I opted not to completely saturate the rock so it had a nice glazed look.

After I sprayed the rock, I brought out my Stencil and using a small paint brush, a sharpie, and black acrylic paint, I stenciled my numbers on first. I used the sharpie to outline them with the stencil and then I hand painted the numbers onto the rock.

I prefer the FolkArt multi surface brand of craft paint because it goes on easily and it's held up just fine outside (no sealing required).

So for about 1 hour of work I went from the boring, outdated before to the light, bright and personalized after!!

    As a new delivery driver, I've become aware of how hard it is to see a home's address from the street especially in the dark. Although cute, this would be very difficult to see from the street. I wish people would be more aware of this issue & make it easier to see your address.
