I’m doing a Spring Cleaning series right now. Each week I will be posting a new idea for either cleaning or organizing.
Recycled Vegetable Cans for organizing your supplies
Have your local school save large vegetable cans for you. I’ve done this multiple times for various projects and they are always happy to give them away. (Special thanks to my friend Dawn for getting my cans from the school where she teaches 🙂
Here’s what you do…
Clean and dry the cans.
Paint with chalkboard paint. (be sure you pick the kind that is for metal..I got mine at Home Depot for around $10.)
It will take two or three coats. Be sure to let the first coat dry completely before adding the second coat. (Tip: if you spray paint with primer, you can probably save one coat of chalkboard paint.)
Once dry, label with chalk.
Add your supplies. I am using mine to store Craft and Art Supplies.
You may even want to purchase a plastic storage shelf to store your cans on. They are very inexpensive.
