We decided to do just that. In the time lapse video above, we spray painted some wheelie bins to give them some colour and make them feel more kid-room friendly. Perfect for storing toys.
If you decide to tackle a project like this, here are a few simple steps that we followed in our project above that might help:
Firstly, give the bins a good clean (preferably with a damp rag) to make sure their surface is free from dust and grime, and then wait til they’re dry.
Secondly, apply a primer. We used Zinsser Cover Stain Spray. This will help the paint to stick to the smooth, plastic surface. Wait til dry (minimum 2 hours).
Lastly, apply two coats of spray paint. We used Dulux Duramax. Apply evenly as required. Give each coat a minimum 2 hours drying time.
The colours used in this project are Pink Flamingo, Sky Blue and Fluoro Green.
