Update an existing plant stand with a bright, cheery color when you tackle this spray paint DIY project. A few coats of Stops Rust in Tuscan Sun brightens your deck or patio and gives a long-lasting durable finish to your outdoor metal.

PREP: Tape off any areas of your items you don't want to paint. Shake can vigorously for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle. 

PAINT: Over a drop cloth, hold can upright 10-16" from surface and spray in a steady back-and-forth
motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Keep the can the same distance from the surface and in motion while spraying. Apply two or more light coats a few minutes apart.

DRY: Dries to touch in 1 hour. Apply a second coat within 1 hour or after 48 hours. 

TIP: The use of Stops Rust Universal Bonding Primer is recommended before spray painting.
