Remember how I wanted to make a detergent tin like this, which btw was about $65.00 and is now not even sold at Ballard Designs any longer.
Well, I finally finished this obsession! My dear friend sent me home from my vegas trip with a "coffee" decorated tin that she picked up from Michaels'. Unfortunately, mrloyd crushed it folding down one of the seats on the trip back. He banged out the dents and I proceeded to paint it with the generic spray paint from Walmart.
To further damage this poor tin's appearance, the paint would not cover and left little paint flicks or whatever you want to call them. But I did not give up on this tin because I was determined that it would survive.
I snubbed my nose at Walmart and headed to The Home Depot for supplies.
I was armed and ready with my new gun and it worked like a charm.
I could not fit "Detergent" in the size of letters that I had my mind set on and I already have a "Laundry" sign for this room so I settled on "Soap".
It's not perfect but I like it! Someday when I finish...or start decorating my laundry room, it will live on a beautiful shelf.
