My Altered Cans....

These cans are so easy and they look Fabulous! All you do is: save cans, pull off labels, wash, paint and decorate! The sky is the limit! And, they are so handy for storage! I think you need a new "pen" holder this weekend! Happy Friday Everyone!


Here is my "Inspirational" Picture from Timewashed, she has a great tutorial for these on her blog. You should hop over and have a look!

Wow! Your altered cans are beautiful! Just love them, and especially that fabulous trim on the Chocolat one, and the awesome flower you created! Looks sooo lovely!

Thanks so much for sharing a link to my tutorial. These are so much fun to make! I need to make a few more for my new studio!

Have a lovely weekend!

These are amazing. I love them. I altered several cans and just posted them, altered them to store all my rick rack, lace and doodads. They work out so well. Yours are just beautiful. Love all of them!

I love your altered cans, so darn pretty. What a great way to up-cycle. I so love the trim on the chocolate one. Your tutorial is great, so now I'll know how to make some for myself. My fingers are crossed that you will share this creativeness over at Sundays' Best going on right now - this is too cute not to share!
