Recycled Plastic Coffee Containers

I will be remodeling my kitchen soon, so I needed some ways to get extra storage without taking any money away from the big projects. So I used some old coffee containers, painted them white and applied waterslide decals to them. The graphics came from the Graphics Fairy She has some beautiful images there to choose from. These are some that I have completed so far.

      I used Krylon spray paint. I sprayed several coats and allowed the container to dry in between coats. I painted them upside down to make sure paint did not get inside the container.

      I like regular spray paint for the faster coverage and drying time. I will be making more of these for the little ones to store their crayons and craft supplies soon.
