I bought a large tin can at an estate sale a few weeks ago. I suspected that it was an old Charles Chip can, but it had been painted green and was only 25 cents. Who can pass up a good storage container for only a quarter? Not me! It just needed a little embellishment…..with chalkboard paint, of course.
I taped off the area for a label,
Lightly sanded and primed the area,
Brushed on 3 coats of chalkboard paint,
Peeled off the tape and prepared the label with the side of a piece of chalk.
It looked rather plain to me, so I added a few dots of green craft paint on top of the chalkboard paint close to the edges of the label.
Now I have the perfect can to store snacks for hungry humans…..
Or treats for furry friends.....!
