“Two-in-One” Paint Bucket / Paint Bucket

“Two-in-One” Paint Bucket

Because the bung of paint buckets is difficult to open, the concave-convex design for the bung can solve it.
Because peopel often use litttle paint once, they will need an extra pot to put paint. Through the “two-in-one” design, an extra pot is built in the paint bucket to decrease extra troubles.
When people paint, the paint will flow along the bucket wall. So, it not only wastes the paint, but also makes some troubles. Through putting a beam in the middle of the paint pot, the trouble mentioned above is easy to solve, and the paint can be used circularly.
