Difficulty LevelIntermediate

Materials:

  • 3 Krylon® ColorMaster Spray Paint 12oz can in Periwinkle
  • 1 Sheet of 90 grit sandpaper
  • 1 Bucket of soap and water


Time to Complete: 1 day

Instructions:

  1. Clean the thrifted bike well from dirt, cobwebs, grease and other elements. This is an important step to ensure that the spray paint will stick to the bicycle and not peel off. Set out a tarp or old sheet to make clean-up easier.
  2. Sand down any rough spots or raised rust areas.
  3. Slowly spray undersides of wheel wells, chain, seat and all elements of the bike. Let dry between coats until entire piece is covered.
  4. Once dry, place in garden and add flowers of your choice!
