Upcycled cans

Today, I decided to get cracking and clean the house!
In between that chore, I also had a project of upcylcling some cans.
They were sitting on my counter after I rinsed them, and I thought, those need a little love.
Some spray paint love. Of course all my favorite Krylon color choices.

Things are starting to get a little colorful around my house. I love to have clementines in a pretty cobalt blue bowl sitting on the counter..those two colors just look so pretty together.

It was suppose to be 75 and sunny today.  Although, warm, very little sun! I rarely listen to the weather man around here!

I created my own sunshine.

Here are some other creative ways to upcycle your cans



Love this!

In the meantime, I notice a rabbit hopping around here!

Have a hoppy night!

Cute idea! I pitched a nice, large coffee can with a plastic lid just the other day, but have run out of places to store things for future use. :(
Beautiful weather here today, but short lived as cold front coming in.

You know I love color! This is a great idea and yes, perfect "sunshine" I think. I can think of several ideas to use them and I've just been tossing them. Duh!

LOVE the photo of the blue cans on the wall.

Terrific spring colors Debbie. What a great way to bring color into your room AND repurpose some cans at the same time. I've started craving more bright, cheery colors lately also. And I just can't get enough of the repurposing of things!!

You know, in your kitchen it looks like a chic upcycled idea. I would probably do it and it would look like my kids art sitting in the kitchen window. Although, what's the matter with that?

I love recycling. In the Philippines we used cans for planting flowers or vegetables. Small or big cans my mother choose them instead of the clay pots, clay pots easily broke because of the low quality it is made. And cans last a long time, right now I am saving my cans and will spray paint them too I like pretty colors ^_^

Debbie, I love your Spring colors! Love to see the flowers in your window sill. And that cute little bunny in your plant is too cute. Enjoy the week-end. Our 15 year old is having three friends over after school and spending the night -for his birthday -but it is not supposed to be a birthday party lol gotta love that age.
