Last month when I showed you guys how I revamped some old coffee containers, I mentioned that my mom had bought me some cheap, clear storage containers from Wal-Mart. Containers she uses in her own home for sugar, flour and things of that nature.
Well, I brought them home and just wasn’t a fan of them. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with them. They serve their purpose. I just didn’t want to be able to see the contents of the containers. I didn’t like that they were clear.
I decided I had to pretty them up!
First I covered the opening with plastic wrap. It was a last minute thought. I just figured it might be a good idea to avoid getting spray paint on the inside.
Next I sprayed the entire outside of the containers with Rust-oleum “Smokey Beige” (multiple light coats are always better than trying to do one heavy coat whenever you’re working with spray paint!).
After it dried completely, I labeled the containers with some labels I found in the scrap booking section of Wal-Mart. Then I sealed them with a can of Krylon Cover Maxx Clear Acrylic, as per usual.
They turned out great! I love them! One for my sugar, one for my flour. I want to get a few more for rice & pasta now! It’s so easy to do and they only took me a day to complete.
Do you like them? If you do, you should definitely pin this for later!
