Transform a galvanized stock tank into fabulously functional outdoor décor.
What You’ll Need
- 100-gallon Galvanized Stock Tank
- Mineral Spirits
- Sanding Sponge Primer
- Designer Series Exterior Suede Paint
- Clear Marine Silicone Sealant
- (2) 4” Rigid Castors
- (2) 4” Swivel Castors
Wipe the surface of the tank with mineral spirits to remove the oil film from new galvanized metal.
Scuff the surface with a 220-grit sanding sponge.
Prime with Beauti-Tone STICK iT primer sealer. The hard, smooth surface of galvanized metal can make it difficult for paint to adhere, however this primer is a problem solver. It is formulated to bond to galvanized metal.
Choose a gorgeous colour in either exterior Designer Series or Rust Coat water-based paint.
Measure, mark, drill and attach the rigid plate casters at one end of the tank. Repeat at the other end with the swivel castors.
Seal the castors’ holes with silicone.
