~Metal cans: what fun!~

Good morning, friends. Yes, this is a new love of mine: metal cans. Some were found in our basement, others elsewhere. At first, the intent was to rust them even more. Then, the idea to paint and speckle them seemed more fun. So, here are the first 3. Actually, these 3 make 4, as I had done one for the Spring Tidings Swap. This is easy to do, and quite fun. The labels are all purchased from/copyrighted by a wonderful Ebay shop at: Primitive Labels and Cds. Now all family members will be getting a painted metal can, lol! Do you all like to re-purpose old metal cans and canisters?

  1. Like how they turned out! Every time I look at a empty can I'm always thinking, what can I do with this?!

  9. Danice this is a really great idea. Another great up cycle. I have about 20 large cans saved in my cabinet just waiting for a make over.

  10. Great idea! Can be used for so many things, too. Floral arrangements are foremost in mind but I know there are other things as well. Very cool!
