personalized anniversary gifts DIY Dog Food Storage Bin {from an old popcorn tin!} pillow covers farmhouse

HELLO THERE! Today I am popping into show you what is one of my absolute favorite projects and it was so, so easy. As you know, we have been working on our kitchen makeover, and I knew it wouldn't be complete without a project focused on our sweet dog, Titan. So, I created a pretty dog food storage bin for him. The best part is that I did it for $0!

Before I tell you how I made my dog food storage binpersonalized anniversary gifts, I have to take you back several years. It was Christmas time and my firm was receiving lots of client gifts, which included a lot of food deliveries. One client sent some yummy popcorn, that came in a large, round, gold tin. When it was empty, someone was about to throw out the tin, but I saved it in the nick of time. In that moment, I had no idea what I would do with it. After getting home, however, I realized it would be a nice way to store Titan's food. It stayed the original gold color until this past weekend. Now, it is orange and fabulous. Read on to learn how to make your own. This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

1) Clean and dry your tin well.

2) Spray paint the portion of your tin that you plan to place your lettering in a dark color. I used oil rubbed bronze spray paint, since I already had that on had. Allow it to dry.

3) Place your craft stickers to spell out whatever words you want on your tin. I originally wanted to spell out “;Titan,”; but I didn't have the letters that I needed and didn't have time to go to the store, so I had to use whatever stickers I already had one hand.

4) Now spray paint the entire tin with your second color. I used orange. Be sure to paint right over the craft letters. Again, I had the orange spray paint already.

5) Once your paint has dried, peel the letters off.

6) Coat your entire tin with a protective, clear top coat. Yep, you guessed it, we already had that, too, from my orange lacquer tray project.

That's it! Isn't that simple, and I seriously love how it turned out. I am actually glad that I didn't have the letters to spell out Titan because I think the “;dog food”; in two different sizes and fonts is more interesting and fun! Just wait unit you see how cute it looks in our kitchen. REVEAL COMING THIS WEEK!!!!

What do you think? When is the last time you had one of those old popcorn tins? Are you going to save the next one you get your hands on so that you can make one of these for your beloved pet?

It’s easy for an office environment to be very uninviting. The necessary equipment in the space including computers, fax machines, copiers, rolling chairs and other items don’t really contribute to the warm tone of an office. That’s why many office owners and managers make the effort to incorporate plants into the décor of their offices. With the addition of a few plants, an office environment takes on a more pleasant atmosphere.

My wife is the biggest fan of giraffes. So when we were designing the nursery, she had to make a felt giraffe head for on the wall. Since only one animal isn't enough, she had to make at least two animals, so she also made an elephant.

The kitchen could be considered as the heart of the home, a place where people congregate to cook, eat and discuss the details of the day. If you are looking to give your kitchen a new look while still keeping it functional, a country-style kitchen could be just what you are looking for. Homely, comforting and forever stylish, the country look has been a popular choice among home owners for years.
