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 have always saved my Maxwell House containers like this! They have handles & are sturdy! I initially started saving them to put paint in, so when I'm painting & up on a ladder, I can conveniently dip into the canister....or even off the ladder it

      They have great handles - if I could just get my husband to drink Maxwell House! :)

    I used the Blue Bunny Frozen Yogurt containers. No lingering odors and great for stacking.

    Just realized, probably could use the containers that Domino sugar comes in now as well
