It’s the time of year when you’re trying to think of a gift to get that special someone who also happens to be the hardest person in the world to buy for. And, he/she already has just about everything they want. The conversation usually goes like this:
You- “I need some ideas about what to get your for Christmas”.
Them- Deafening silence.
An Idea for You
Here’s an idea or two to make your gift-giving life easier.
There are a number of things that can be powder coated in virtually any color and will make a fantastic gift. Maybe you have an old set of iron or metal lawn furniture sitting in your backyard rusting away. Wouldn’t it be cool to make it look brand new again? Your better half would be thrilled with your creativity! Plus, you’d be preserving the kind and quality of furniture they just don’t make anymore. A glider or old-fashioned metal chair that might be destined for the junk yard can have new life and save you a lot of money versus buying new furniture.
What Else Might You Powder Coat?
What else might you add new life and/or sparkle to? Basically, anything that can withstand the 400 degree heat needed to electro-statically apply the paint can be powder coated. Here are a few suggestions you might consider as a powder coated gift:
- Vehicle wheels to match or contrast your vehicle’s color
- Many other automotive parts such as brake calipers, engine blocks, luggage racks- Too many items to list!
- Motorcycle parts and accessories
- Bicycle parts and accessories
- Any wrought iron (gates, fencing or other items)
- House number plaques
- Your kitchen toaster (yes, really)
- Aluminum thermos type tumblers
