Get dollar store plastic tubs and turn them into adorable faux DIY mini galvanized tubs for your cokes!
When the summer heats up, we try to avoid heating up the house, so we do a lot of grilling outside. I like to make it fun and festive even when it’s just us. My family gets excited when I pull a few Cokes out into a tub because they know it’s barbecuing time.
I love the look of a galvanized tub full of drinks. They’re a great addition to any summer barbecue. But, I didn’t have one or even know where to get one. I decided to make my own mini versions when I found mini plastic tubs at the dollar store that I thought would work perfectly. You can easily make DIY Mini Galvanized Tubs, too!
I picked up some metallic spray paint in a “hammered” texture. I put one coat on and then let them dry overnight. The next day, I put a second coat on and let them dry overnight again. Then, they were ready for use.
When it’s time to grill and you want to get those Cokes cold quickly, try making a slurry. Fill the tub half way with water and then fill the rest of it with ice. Add your cokes, and in just a few minutes, you’ll have ice-cold refreshing Cokes.
