Fabulous Folger's Coffee Plastic Container Upcycle

Saved to Idea Box. Organize
With some chalkboard labels from Michael's and a can of Krylon Paint these coffee containers become great organizers for crafts, sewing or as a reposit for rice, pasta, flour or sugar - especially when the person has difficulty with heavy canisters. I kept the insides carefully covered so they remained food-safe. Buy paint that is usable on plastic and follow directions - they must cure for 4-5 days! Try here for a better demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8TAewzKwfo .
Time: 4 Days Cost: $10 Difficulty: Easy

    I use them to store brown sugar, craft items(like small minis), etc. I don't paint them - take labels off and put new ones on.

    ball up newspaper loosely and close the cans and leave it for several days if it doesn't take all the coffee smell out the first time try it again

    You can also try and put some baking soda inside with a little water. Shake and pour it out. Soda is a great deodorizer. Works on many things,

    I always save them for different items.
