Amy blogs at Homey Oh My. Recently, she upcycled some empty tins cans into pretty herb planters. Along the way she discovered a really terrific new color of spray paint, so this is a rescue not to be missed.
Amy started the project with these cans that formerly contained diced tomatoes, washed and all evidence of labels removed. Next, she sprayed them with Rustoleum Metallic Spray Paint in Copper. ”Don’t let the weird orange-y looking cap fool you,” she advises. ”This paint has the same beautiful sheen as the gold one that I love so much. I wouldn’t say it’s a chrome finish, but it’s more of a brushed metal look.” While the paint was drying, Amy crafted some labels for her planters using balsa wood, chalkboard paint, and twine. She planted herbs in them, and the project was complete! I love the coppery sheen of these–what a perfect color for a kitchen window display!
