It's not often that we have empty coffee cans in our home.
So when I found myself with one last week - I figured it was 'project time'.
My first order of business was to plant my herbs.
Funny - I went out and bought chives and parsley (I was in an extreme hurry.)
When I got home - I realized what I actually bought was chives and cilantro.
Guess I'll be cooking Italian (or is that Mexican?) Recipes welcomed!
Next I painted and distressed the can. Translation - I sanded it in
places and then added a little glaze to tone down the creamy white...
I was inspired by Heather's recent project at Post Road Vintage (she's the best!)...
but alas - I had no good looking seed packet to use.
So - I went rooting thru my paper ephemera (which isn't tons)
and decided on this greeting card...
With a bit of scissors work, a ribbon of burlap and some mod podging
(using homemade of course!) - I'm thinking I'm happy with it.
Oh - and the plastic coffee can lid?
Switched to the bottom it makes a great coaster to prevent
a rusty ring on whatever surface the can is sitting on.
