When was the last time you checked …
all of those almost empty-gallon-size paint cans in your garage? We have Home Depot cans with 1/4 of an inch of Hale Navy hugging the bottom of the can.
Or, you open a can and the contents look and feel like a can of tinted cement.
I shared this popular tip to organize paint cans and gain shelf space!
FUN WITH EMPTY PAINT CANS
On a recent trip to the garage, I had a few cans with 1/8 of dried paint. My instinct was to toss it, but then … on a whim, I peeled off the Home Depot label.
and discovered a smooth black finish hiding under the label.
You guys this is a bucket disguised as a paint can in the garage.
If you are a reader at Everyday Edits you know me and you know buckets are in my top five decor staples.
So you know what I did when I discovered this bucket?
Nothing! It was as if I had found buried treasure in the garage and did not want to share the news.
REPURPOSE PAINT CANS INTO HALLOWEEN BUCKETS
- Remove the paint can lid
- Pour any remaining paint into these jars or a plastic container.
- I added Halloween theme paper from Michaels leftover from other crafts.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope this repurpose idea inspires you to find new uses for paint cans. You can check out other one-hour projects on my Pinterest page. Please pin it for others to find!
