    Looks good It's pretty fun doing this, now you'll start looking all over the house for things you can powder coat. I'm thinking of doing my outdoor house lights (porch, driveway, etc.).

      Thank you Frank...

      i am glad i can help where i can... look's good

      You can build a booth out of the foil board to reclaim you powder the foil will grap the over spary and hold it when you done brush it down with a claen brush and sweep on on a sheet of clean paper then reuse..

      my personal part i will reclaim but for the customer the floor is multi color.. then i sweep it in the corner til i toss it in the trash..

      But if you need any help or tips feel free to ask...

      Good luck and welcome to the world of powder coating ...

            Hey, speaking of looking around the house for things to powdercoat, check out my porch light I took down one of my embarassingly awful, weathered, beat up porchlights and powdercoated it gloss white. Here's a pic, along with one of another of the same style that shows what it used to look like.

            It looked really bad before doing this, but now it's the nicest part of the house

            Let's see, what else can I powdercoat? Hey, the yard faucets! heh heh

                Good job on the porch light!
                Speakink of bathroom sink, I am thinkink to get a kitchen sink and candy coat it and show it to some interior desinger. Since the house and renovation business is blooming maybe a market for that...

                  Good job, they both look real nice.
                  You should be able to do a sink as long as its stainless steel or cast iron... I think you guys might be on to something there, just might be a good market.

                      Cats are much easier to powder but they don't like the curing process either......

                            Good eye Chuck. Any advise on getting coverage in an area like that without getting to heavy on the adjacent part?

                              When the pieces were apart hanging on the rack, I didn't coat the backside of that piece. I forgot that the underside was visible.
