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.
