Basic Curb Painting Tool Kit:

4" Paper Stencils

Paper stencils are inexpensive & flexible for curvy curbs. Have several packs handy.

3" Paper Stencils

3" stencils are more suited for lower curbs. Paper stencils can last many uses with care.

Stencil Adhesive

Under spray is a common problem. Stencil adhesive can help. 

1" Masking Tape

1" Masking tape is for all those things that 3/4" tape is too skinny for. I keep both sizes handy.

Flat White Enamel

Make sure you get Rustoleum brand flat paint for the best and longest lasting results. 

Flat Black Enamel

Having several cans on hand is a great pro tip. Never run out!

Wire Brush

A wire brush knocks off the big crud so paint can stick to the curb.

Soft Bristle Brush

Brush away small particles and dust from the curb after using a wire brush.

Masking Paper

Masking paper is for protecting the area around your curb number from overspray. 

Masking Tape

3/4" masking tape is "just right" for taping stencils together.

Blue Tape

When you don't want to leave tape residue, use blue painter's tape. 

Nitrile Gloves

Follow my "one glove per day" rule and a box of gloves will last a long time.

Tape Measure

For getting everything centered and balanced.

Utility Knife

Impossible to list its many uses. A toolkit must-have.

Hobby Brushes

Touch-ups make a good curb number great!


Lacquer thinner cleans everything from brushes to tools.

A Few Rags

You can use any old rag, but just in case you don't have any...

Fanny Pack

Pro tip: Fanny packs keep cash safe & organized!

Weed Killer

Cut away weeds and treat the area before painting your curb.

Plastic Stencils

Plastic stencils may last longer than paper. Best for flat surfaces.
