Art Update // Painted Cooler

May 28, 2015

Last summer I started painting this cooler for myself, and I just finally finished it! Being one of those people that sometimes abandons projects halfway, I knew that I had to get my act together and finish this one.

I liked the idea of sticking to a color palette, so I picked out pink, blue, yellow, red, and gray. There is a little bit of gold and silver glitter spread throughout. For the design of the cooler itself, I knew I had to include some of my favorite motifs and a few things that remind me of summer. Obviously red lipstick got a mention! So did my favorite flower (daisies) my home state (Virginia) and another nod to the south, a mason jar.

Now that I'm finished, I never want to paint another cooler! Haha! Quite a few people have asked me to make paint these 5 sided monstrosities over the past couple of months (I've painted 3 coolers this past year, other than my own!) so I'm kind of burnt out at the moment. Maybe I'll try again next year, but I'm not making any promises.

What do you think of my cooler? I, for one, am ready to hit the beach!

Have you ever painted a cooler?
What would you want yours to look like?
