So in this blog post I want to share a galvanized metal hack with y’all. It’s so easy and was fun to make.

Items you will need for this project:

You won’t believe this “metal” O isn’t actually metal. It’s cardboard but you can’t even tell! It was something I was so excited to make this because I bought a DIY rust paint kit, and have been dying to use it.


First off I painted my O gray.


It took a couple layers. You will want to let it dry between layers for about 30 minutes. Once the second layer was dry I used a metallic silver paint.


This also took a couple layers. Same process to dry.




Once the last layer of metallic paint was dry I was able to use my rust paint. I haven’t ever used it before so it was a bit of trial and error. The paint set I bought came with two different shades.


One was a dark shade that dried chunky. It gave the rust a bit of texture.


I brushed it on the edges where rust would naturally go. The second paint color was a light brown that I brushed lightly on top of the dark paint once it dried. Like I mentioned it was a lot of experimenting because I hadn’t used this rust kit before.

But I ended up loving it!


The best part is the fact that it was so chunky because it actually looked like layers were peeling off. Like it was genuinely an old rustic piece that had sat there for many years.

This DIY rust kit turned out to be super easy to use and the finished look was absolutely amazing. It looks so cute on my wall of O’s.
