First Project. Many more to come!

I found a wooden trash can at Hobby Lobby for $5. Pretty blah, eh?

I spray painted it Espresso. This was taken before I applied the second coat. Two coats were needed to cover it well. 

I bought a cheap wooden fleur-de-lis applique. I painted it white and attached it to the trash can with Gorilla Glue. (Love that stuff!!)

And voila! Super cute, super easy. That's my kind of project! :)

I'm very happy with my lil project. 

I'm linking with Shanty2Chic. Check out their blog for lots of craft ideas and inspiration!
