Recycled Pencil Tin
These coloured pencils came from my mums friend and as soon as I saw them I knew I had to have them on display. I just love how the ends of the pencils are cut and you can see all the great colours.
I've had painted food cans saved in my craft/DIY folder on pinterest for months so thought now was the perfect time to give it a go. It was incredibly easy and I didn't have to tape the can off to get a straight edge either.
I used a disposable sponge paint brush to apply two coats of paint, leaving it to dry for a few hours in between, and it was done. Probably one of the easiest but most effective DIY's. I want to do a couple more in different shades to keep other bits of stationary in on my desk.
