Step Two

Using E600 glue, attach four chess pieces of the same size to the bottom of the wash bucket. If the pieces aren’t already colored black, spray paint them so they are. Allow the pieces to dry onto the bottom for 24 hours before flipping the bucket over.

Step Three

Use your paint pen to outline the letters on the wash bucket, or just write something of your own on the bucket.
