Coleman Combat Cooler on the Cheap!

 This might be the quickest and most enjoyable project I have completed in a long time.

Step 1. Be in the right place at the right time. And get a Coleman Cooler for free. Or hit a yard sale and get a Coleman Cooler for Cheap.

Step 2. Get a can of Krylon Khaki Spray Paint, 312g. Or Olive. Or Flat Black. Or you could do a multi-coat custom camouflage job.

Step 3. Start at the bottom. If windy, this paint dries very fast.
 Step 4. Flip-over. Paint the top.

Step 5. Let dry. After 24 - 48 hours your cooler is good-to-go!!

Maximum time involvement not more than 30 minutes, plus drying and curing time.


Update. Alright. Maybe that was too easy. It looks like I will have to apply a second coat. The first coat seems to chip off too easy. So, next set of days off I will paint again. Since you must apply the second coat within 24 hours or after 7 days.

I'll let you know how it turns out. I am still very happy with the effect. This cooler is going to look great in the Tahoe!!
