Painted Cooler for Boyfriend

I made this cooler for my boyfriend when we went to Corolla, NC with some friends for a weekend! I bought the cooler at Walmart, had a friend sand it for me, primed it with this, and painted it with acrylic paints like these from Michaels. I printed out and then mod-podged on the hockey players (that’s actually Brendan and his teammates!) and the two bottles next to the beach chairs (they’re Brendan and I’s favorite drinks). I then sealed it with this from Home Depot. I got some of the ideas from the Cooler Connection Facebook page and others I printed out, taped to the cooler and traced with Sharpie and then painted over it. The sharpie started to come through the places I painted white after I sealed the cooler but not too noticeably.
