DIY || One Can Two WaysNovember 13, 2012
There is nothing that I love more than a quick and easy DIY. We had a couple of tin cans lying around, so of course I felt they needed immediate gold spray paint attention (you know me and my gold spray paint obsession- Trinket DIY, Animal Jar DIY). First, I primed both cans (you probably don't have to) and then when dry I added the gold spray paint. I felt it still looked too "canny" so decided to add some orange, which would go perfectly in my orange and green office. Using painter's tape I added a bit orange! And Voila! A simple yet very decorative object.
The best part? Cans are so versatile. You can use them for storage or as a vase. So I did both!
Here is the can serving as a desk organizer by day......
And holder of beautiful flowers by night!.....Little Miss A. (my mini stylist) thought the table centerpiece needed more character so she added a little owl. What perfect family dinner table decor!!
I used this food can, this primer, this spray paint in gold and this spray paint in orange. What do you think?
