Hello! Sorry to have been away for so long. I recently got back from a trip back home to OK. (It was a lovely visit - wish I was still there.) Although I've been absent from blog world, I have actually been working on several DIY projects (yay!!). I'm not sure they are all worth sharing because some are small and easy, but what the heck, I'm going to anyway. :)
The point of this post is to share with you another project involving a spray paint transformation. It's not a cute and darling project, but it is quite useful and frugal! Maybe it will inspire someone out there to look beyond the pattern or color of items discovered at a discount store. I firmly believe that almost anything can be transformed with a can of spray paint - who's with me?!
So, I was checking out my local Big Lots store when I came across this little trash can.
Dislike: The fact that it looks like it belongs in a preteen girls bedroom.
Like: That it has a flip top cover (which is especially useful when I have two dogsters that can access the bathroom trashcan).
Since it was only $6, I brought it home, taped off the black areas, and gave the rest a coat of Krylon metallic silver, which was leftover from a knob makeover.
15 minutes later and we have a brand new, dog-proof and trash-hiding garbage can!
At Walmart, a small aluminum or stainless steel trash can costs upwards of fifteen or twenty bucks. I like my $6 version much better. :)
