Loving Pinterest!

I am having so much fun with my Pinterest projects this summer!  My first project's inspiration came from Garnet Hill's polka dot trashcans.  Mine is definitely not as fab as theirs, but it was a DIY that I'm proud of.  We had an old can that had been used to hold dog food. I hosed it out and let it dry.  Then I went and got spray paint!  I've only used it once before and never on metal.  I spread out my old sheet and got to work.  I found that it was easy.  I'm so pleased that I'll be doing more spray paint projects this summer.  My garbage can redo is below.  The color is a pale, lime green.  The picture definitely doesn't do justice to the color!!  What am I going to use it for?  Perhaps storage.  Perhaps for a trashcan instead of the ugly plastic one in my room now.  Can you think of any ideas?

I'll be back with more completed projects this summer.  I'm doing a whole classroom decor redo for next year, so I'll be busy! I'd love to see any projects that you make, too!
