How to revitalise your barbecue with spray paint


Posted 1st May

The approach of another Bank Holiday weekend will leave many of us looking forward to a nice barbecue - weather permitting, of course!

If you left yours to the mercy of the elements over the winter months and it's now looking a bit sorry for itself, there's no need to rush out and buy another one. Instead, why not revitalise it with this simple guide from Rust-Oleum?

You will need

An old barbecue
Rust-Oleum Stove & BBQ Enamel
Newspaper / dustsheets
Masking tape

Directions

1. Move your barbecue out to an open space in the garden or garage on top of a large dust sheet or some old newspapers. You may want to cover the surrounding area with additional dust sheets/ newspaper to protect it from spray mist.

2. Knock off any loose rust on the barbecue with a wire brush and wipe clean with a damp sponge.

3. Remove or mask off propane tank (if it’s a gas barbecue), wheels, tool basket, shelves, and other miscellaneous hardware using masking tape.

4. Apply Rust-Oleum Stove & BBQ Enamel to the entire outer surface of the barbecue. Follow the application tips and drying times on the can. Reattach all removed parts when dry.

Two light applications should be sufficient to give your barbecue a good few years of additional service!
