Fabulous Folger's Coffee Plastic Container Upcycle

4 hours ago
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!

Time: 4 Days Cost: $10 Difficulty: Easy

    I did something similar to this with a bulk Ravioli can.

      Cathy Klingel Thank you! I just checked, it's working fine so it must have been a glitch about an hour ago. You can try it again!

    I used this same idea, with just about the same color, to make a composting container for kitchen scraps. I refused to buy an expensive ceramic one. This works quite well, and when it gets too ratty looking I clean and put another coat of paint on! I
