There, hello! I’d want to share with you one of my all-time favorite crafts with you today because it was so simple. As you are aware, we have been remodeling our kitchen, and I felt it wouldn’t be finished without a project honoring Titan, our lovable dog. So I made him a lovely dog food container. I did it for free, which is the nicest part!

I need to take you back a few years before I explain how I created my dog food storage bin. It was the holiday season, and my company was inundated with client gifts, including numerous food deliveries. One customer sent some delicious popcorn in a big, round, gold container. The tin was ready to be thrown out when it was empty, but I intervened just in time. I was unsure of what I would do with it at the time. But when I got home, I understood that would be a good place to keep Titan’s food. The hue remained the same until this past weekend. It is now gorgeous and orange.

HOW TO MAKE A DOG FOOD STORAGE BIN AT HOME: 1) Thoroughly wash and dry your tin.

2) Spray paint a dark color on the area of your tin where you’ll be placing your lettering. Since I already had oil-rubbed bronze spray paint on hand, I utilized it instead. Let it air dry.

3) Use your craft stickers to decorate your tin with the words you want to spell out. Initially, I planned to spell out “Titan,” but I lacked the necessary letters and didn’t have time to run to the store, so I had to make do with the stickers I already had.

4) Spray paint your second color over the entire tin at this point. It was orange. Make sure to paint over the craft letters completely. Once more, I already had the orange spray paint.

5) Remove the letters after the paint has dried.

6) Apply a protective, clear top coat to the entire tin. Yes, as you probably have suspected, we had it as well from my orange lacquer tray endeavor.

I’m done now! Isn’t that straightforward, and I’m very happy with the outcome. Since I don’t have the letters to spell Titan, I’m really relieved because I find the “dog food” in two distinct sizes and fonts to be more intriguing and entertaining. Until you see how adorable it appears in our kitchen, please wait. Coming this week: THE REVEAL!

How do you feel? When was the last time you ate popcorn from one of those vintage cans? Are you planning to build one of these for your cherished pet with the next one you can get your hands on?
