DIY || One Can Two Ways

There is nothing that I love more than a quick and easy DIY.  We had a couple of tin cans lying around, so of course I felt they needed immediate gold spray paint attention (you know me and my gold spray paint obsession- Trinket DIY, Animal Jar DIY).  First, I primed both cans (you probably don't have to) and then when dry I added the gold spray paint.  I felt it still looked too "canny" so decided to add some orange, which would go perfectly in my orange and green office.  Using painter's tape I added a bit orange! And Voila! A simple yet very decorative object.
The best part?  Cans are so versatile.  You can use them for storage or as a vase.  So I did both!  

Here is the can serving as a desk organizer by day......
And holder of beautiful flowers by night!.....
Little Miss A. (my mini stylist) thought the table centerpiece needed more character so she added a little owl.  What perfect family dinner table decor!!

I used this food can, this primer, this spray paint in gold and this spray paint in orange. What do you think?
