What a great craft project DPINA57!

 

Use 220-grit sandpaper to buff off any rust.

 

Wipe off the sanding dust with a dry terry towel.

 

Prime the tank with Rust-Oleum Clean Metal Primer.

 

Once primed, you can finish with craft paint, spray paint, or almost any other coating ... so be as creative as you wish!

 

NOTE:

Please be safe while executing this project.

If the tank is really rusty, simply take it to Hone Depot and exchange it for a clean, filled tank. I have never gotten a tank from this service that did not look like new.

The large home-size tanks can be an eye-sore.  They usually are close to the house and look like a big blimp.

 

I have a 500 gallon tank that the rounded end faces the street. Through the years, I've planted flowers around it, put a picket fence  around it and finally decided to embrace it and flaunt it.... ha ha.  I painted it a fleshy pink color and made a pig face on the rounded end. Because I like to change things up, I now have it painted like the Texas flag.

 

I've seen one with flowers painted on the tank (bluebonnets, specifically....Texas state flower), and another was painted black and white like a spotted cow. It's something you can get creative with and make a bold statement.

Making a statement can certainly be fun and personalize your Acre!

 

Thanks for sharing this great idea!

Hi DIPINA57,

I was just curious if you finished your tank painting project.

Please take time to share photos.

I know The Community would love to see your handiwork.
