Upcycled Plastic Bins con't., *UPDATE*

Vintage Flower Seed Labels

Vintage Fruit Crate Labels

In my last blog (iSavortheweekend.blogspot.com) I upcyled my coffee and creamer coffee bins.  I had another batch to paint so away I went.

Click HERE to see how to paint and decoupage these bins.  Hard to believe these are plastic bin, eh?

The only different step I took, instead of priming and painting, I just used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Vintage White as the base color.  So you know, next time I will use Rust-oleums Spray Primer again, ASCP tends to not stick on some spots of the plastic bins and peels off easily.

I found the labels on Pinterest by searching Vintage Fruit Crate or Vintage Flower Packet labels.

 These new bins are going to look great once my kitchen gets painted.  Can't wait!

Have a blessed week and Happy 4th!!  Until next time,

My Patriotic Bin
I painted it using acrylic paint
(Front and Back views)
Cost about $7.00 for the red, white and blue acrylic craft paint
not counting buying the coffee or creamer and then saving the bins
I partied at:
