30 Minute Upcycle for Old Metal Trash Can

Look how 30 minutes
can transform this little old trash can.

A bunch of happy paint colors will do the trick!

No prep, just wiped it down.

Sprayed the interior with Rustoleum Key Lime.

Using Aqua, Lime, and White

I applied the paint with cardstock

and used my go-to "Dip and Drag" .

I've painted a lot of furniture this way,

The layered paint has so much texture,
I could paint right over the paper decal.

Pin It! 

Pin It!

Such a quick and easy transformation

but can brighten a corner in your home!

Also, if you're thinking about Easter Projects

my craft girls painted these cute Beadboard Bunny Signs

last year.

I'm on a roll with the aqua and green.

Thinking Spring!

Wishing you a warm, sunny day,

Love that trash can transformation! You make everything look SO easy. 30 minutes for you = 2 hours for me! :)
Hope you're having a great week!
