Tin Can Utensil Holder

In between painting the cabinets in the kitchen, Chablis and I also worked on some new items to decorate the kitchen with as well.  I saw this tin can idea from a guest post over at A Repurposed Life and thought it was so cute.  I made mine a little differently, but it's basically the same thing.

I had made chili the night before, so I kept these 2 cans because I liked the size of them.  I washed them with some dish soap, let them dry overnight and then coated the outside of both cans with 2 coats of clear polycrylic....


I grabbed an old board out of the garage and painted it with a coat of white paint and then a coat of blue paint and gave it a light distressing after it dried.  I drilled a small hole in the top of the board and threaded some twine through it to hang it up.  And finally I used small zip screws to screw the cans onto the board.  I attached the screws from the inside of the cans onto the board and they were small enough that the screws don't stick out the back of the board.  Then I just hung it up on the end of one of the cabinets....


Cute huh?  Did you notice how I gave you just a little glimpse of my kitchen?  You have to come back tomorrow for the full reveal!

 
Yesterday I just happened to run across a post by the original blogger over at Knick of Time and I wanted to give credit where credit was due.  Go over and visit if you have time.
