Metal drink tub spray painted with Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Protective Enamel in Gloss Tuscan Sun. After

Grab a metal bucket from your local discount store and make this bright beverage tub for your summer barbecue or party.

  1. PREPARE: Always work in a well-ventilated area and use a drop cloth to protect from overspray.
  2. PRIME: Shake your can of Stops Rust Universal Bonding Primer for one minute after the mixing ball starts to rattle. Then, hold the can 12” away from the tub and spray in a steady, sweeping motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Spray two or more light coats onto the tub a few minutes apart.
  3. PAINT: Next, shake your can of Stops Rust Protective Enamel Spray for one minute. Then, hold it 10-16” away from the tub and spray in the same way you sprayed the primer. Apply two or more light coats.
  4. FINISH: Set the tub aside for 24 hours before filling with ice and beverages. Enjoy!
