Speaking of bright and colorful, this was a fun and easy project that I had my daughter do for her new room. When clipping out photos of “cool things” needed, we came across this unique trash can photographed in a PB teen layout (shown above in the room photo). We had to have one too! So I headed to my local thrift store where I found a perfect specimen. A lovely black metal trash can featuring a flying mallard and pond scene.
We primed around the outside of the can and left the inside as it was. Then, my daughter Blake did the rest. She’s great at collage art, so I knew this was the project for her. After her beautiful art was complete, we finished off the entire thing with a coat of pearl glaze (oh, if we could coat everything in peal glaze…) and a clear coat of polyurethane. Doesn’t it look great? What can we decoupage next?
