‼️ FIRST THINGS FIRST: You’ve gotta spend time prepping your surfaces. Remove knobs and handles. Clean BBQ with hot soapy water (with a degreaser) and steel/wire brush any excess rust off your surfaces. Hose it down and let it dry. Then wipe it down with some mineral turps on a micro fibre cloth and allow to dry again. Cover the areas you want to protect from over spray.

 

🎨 THE PAINT: White Knight High Temp Self-Priming Heat Resistant Spray Paint (colour: Pot Belly Black).

 

👉 THE DETAILS: Gold Spray Paint (whatever self-priming one you like). Only apply to parts not exposed to heat.

 

The project cost me less than $100 and the results were outstanding!


The perfect way to add luxe to your home for a small price tag!

Re: Tranforming your BBQ

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @moniquecole1990. It's brilliant to have you join us, and many thanks for sharing this wonderful project.

 

I must say, this is the first time I've seen a BBQ glow-up, and I LOVE it! What a fantastic way to add some pizzazz to something most would typically consider just a functional item. I really envy your creativity.

 

This would make a fantastic entry into Australia's best D.I.Y. project 2022. Would you like me to enter it for you?

 

Well done, and I look forward to hearing more about all your projects around the house and garden. Please reach out anytime you need assistance or have something to share.

Re: Tranforming your BBQ

Yes - Please enter me! That would be great! I love everything DIY and this was just another thing I saw some potential in. For me, DIY is an opportunity not only to practice and learn new skills, but also to salvage something that otherwise would have ended up in landfill. I’m glad I could give our BBQ a new lease on life and save us some money in the long run!
