With all of the Jute projects floating around blogland, I thought I could put some jute to work on my own project. So...I made a jute trash can for my living room. Have you priced little trashcans lately? My goodness!!!
What began as a cheap tin (think Christmas popcorn tin) with Hot Wheels race cars all over it, became something I am quite proud of. I got this tin/can/bucket at Wal-Mart during a 75% off Easter sale. The Wal-Mart in my town had WAY too much inventory and had their already-put-together Easter baskets SUPER cheap, so I bought several (for the candy of course), including this tin filled with candy. Oh how I wished I had a true before picture.
First, I covered up the racecars with gray spray paint primer(what I had available):
Next, I began hot-gluing the jute (from Wal-mart) around the bottom of the tin working my way up to the top (or bottom since I had it upside down):
Like Kimba, I had all of my tools: Table protecting sheets, glue gun, sweet tea, and popcorn!
When I had FINALLY finished (yeah, this took a little time, but was worth it) I played around with a couple places to show it off (I mean, make use of it :P ):
So...what do you think?
OH!! Don't forget to checkout my GIVEAWAY!
