Trash Can Project

I was so tired of looking at the eye sore of a trash can I had sitting in my kitchen.  It was just a cheap boring black trash can.  Exhibit A: Before

It seems there is a fix for everything now, so I decided to look up different kinds of spray paint, and found a special plastic spray paint at Lowes.    I went with red and brown since those are the colors in my home.

Here is the brown finally finished. (Excuse my messy backyard) It was really windy that day and super cold! BRRRHHHH

This took me a couple days to actually do, and boy did I miss my trash can in the process lol.  I realized that spray painting things is not as easy as you think.  The weather conditions have to be perfect or you get paint everywhere! I had first decided to spary the entire can brown, and maybe do some red embelishments all over it.  But after much trial and error and continuos re-touching and do overs, I simplified my idea!

I wanted to bring in just a little bit of the red in my decor.  I had a stencil from Hobby Lobby that I used to help paint the red design and finally, FINISHED!

What do you think??  Im happy with it!
