While looking at my workbench, holding a coffee can to put in recycling, I noticed some scraps and dust that needed to be swept off the top of the workbench. Found the small dust sweeper, but could not find dust pan....hmmm....plastic coffee can with recessed handle could work as a dust pan. And, there you have it....new project!
Dust Pan Made From Coffee Container
Supplies: Yuban plastic coffee can with recessed handle; spray paint; painters tape; duct tape; cut wire; dust brush; and heavy duty scissor or snip scissor.
Cut container as shown (note I had to notch out where bottom front had a raised area).
Use a punch to create a hole to put wire thru. Bend wire down on reverse side of container next to handle.
Cut rectangle piece from coffee container lid. Duct tape from inside container around to bottom. Secured with more duct tape under container.
Place under front bottom of container for smooth lip.
Duct tape from inside container around to bottom. Secured with more duct tape under container.
Cover bristles with painters tape before spray painting brush.
After spray painting container and allowing to dry overnight, this pic shows inside finished product.
Whew....took me longer to post this than to make it...LOL! Now, I'm looking to stencil or decal.
