Swim season isn’t over YET, and we’re planning on staying in the pool til the leaves fall from the trees. Stock tank pools are all the rage right now, and we can see why. They’re still big enough to swim in, but not nearly as expensive as putting in and maintaining an actual swimming pool. And we’re of the opinion that if you’re going to get a stock tank pool, you might as well have one in the colors you love. That’s why Lolly Jane is going to show you how to paint your stock tank pool the right way in this easy tutorial. Give the rest of summer a splash of fabulous color with COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paint!

Prep stock tank pool for painting
Before painting your stock tank pool, it helps to prop it up on tables if you can, for easier access when painting. Lolly Jane also recommends removing the protective oil coating on the outer layer by using paint thinner and a rag. After doing this, use fine-grit sandpaper to rough up the surface of the pool so the paint has an easier time gripping it. Wipe off the dust with a clean rag, then apply a coat of white vinegar and let set an hour or so before wiping off. This will help break up any remnants of the shiny protective coat.
Spray paint outside of pool with light coats
Since COLORSHOT Spray Paints already have primer in them, you can skip the priming step and get right to painting! Apply several light coats of your favorite spray paint color, letting dry in between coats. Tip from Lolly Jane: Don’t worry about painting the inside of the pool. The paint will likely flake and peel off over time with water being inside of it.
Fill stock tank pool and enjoy
Once your paint has completely cured, it’s time to fill it and enjoy! Isn’t it so much better when you have a pool that matches your personality? Of course it is!
