Upcycle a coffee can into a pretty vase to display Spring flowers.
UPCYCLE A COFFEE CAN: PAINTED VASE FOR SPRING FLOWERS
The JTS and I drink coffee every morning and we have a lot of recycled coffee cans in the workshop. This coffee can held a stash of furniture knobs. It’s moving on to bigger and better things.
I applied the paint using a small chalk paintbrush.
The paint covered really well with one coat but I applied a second coat just for fun. The second coat was really just to cover areas I didn’t cover completely the first time.
The paint adheres to all sorts of things including metal and I don’t have to rough up (sand) or prime my project piece. The paint has a flat matte finish which makes it easy to distress, wax, layer, etc.
To achieve a soft dreamy finish I applied FolkArt® Home Decor Wax, color white.
