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 http://graphicsfairy.blogspot.com/p/search.html She has some beautiful images there to choose from. These are some that I have completed

      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.
