Fabulous Folger's Coffee Plastic Container Upcycle

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.

    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,
