Another treasure from the barn. This was a score I had picked up a few years ago at a yard sale for $1. From the condition it looked like it had sat outside. The structure was good, but the outside surface was pretty rough and weathered.
I painted the outside a light powder blue. I didn’t paint the inside lip or the bottom of the lid. Our summers are pretty humid, and I figure with the moisture that would be present from the cooler, any paint on the inside would most likely peel or cause the lid to stick.
Over the blue I randomly wiped on petroleum jelly.
