DIY Galvanized Tubs From the Dollar Store

I love the look of vintage items. One thing I always wanted for a backyard party is a big galvanized tube. Then, I was the dollar store and saw something I could make look like one.
These plastic bins were just $1/each and I knew with a bit of spray paint, I could make them look like galvanized tubs!
I grabbed a couple and found the perfect spray paint to give it the look of galvanized tubs. Nobody had a clue these were originally plastic totes. They even sweat like the real thing!

    please tell me what the paint is. My computer freezes up when I try to link to other websites so it is very cumbersome to read your blog. thanks

    I can't view your blog either. Do you have to prep the container or just spray paint it and how many coats?
