No Spend Decorating: Painted Tin Cans

In this last week of my No Spend Decor miniseries, I will post five minute DIY/Copycat projects found on Pinterest. Today's painted tin can project is brought to you buy a can of green beens, diced tomatoes, and mandarin oranges. Tee-Hee!

My husband is a big believer in having tinned canned fruit and veggies stored for an emergency, but occasionally money is tight and we dip into our stash of canned foods. This past month I was recovering from a surgery so we have more tin cans lying around than usual.  

I didn't have to buy any paint because we have sample paint leftover from prior home projects. Yay! Use what you have at home! SHOP YOUR HOUSE PEOPLE! 

Items Used:
1. Tin Cans
2. Blue Painter's Tape
3. Blue sample paint

1. Tape the Can
2. Paint the Can

Yeah, it's that easy.

In the picture, I put some random stuff from my sewing room. They'll likely be used as herb planters for my handmade Christmas presents. (Handmade series starting November!!)

  1. Hey! Thank you for your sweet words and motivation on my post today. I know that it came across as very negative! Hate that... but I have had BAD week! I had a long chat with my mom AND husband tonight! Ha. I'm definitely going to try and change my attitude...cause it stinks right now!!

    Now, about this post... I love it!! I have pinned something similar...and I think it's a fun (free!) way to create some cute storage. LOVE!!
