“Pin”spiration Week 9 – New Clothes Hamper!
One of the first things I pinned on Pinterest was THIS cute painted trash can. I took a little different spin on it and made a clothes hamper – that is complete Hank proof. I also want to kick myself because I forgot to take pictures while I was painting…so there aren’t any of that, but I’ll walk you through what I did.
I started out purchasing a metal trash can, but if you have an old one that you don’t use anymore, it would be perfect to use for that.
Next, you need to prime it. I found a good spray-on primer at True Value…and I found a nice, warm day to do the priming!
After the primer dries, paint the can fully with whatever paint you choose. I chose a glossy paint and I love how it turned out. For the liner, you can make your own, or do what I did…just find a laundry bag in the color you want! If you would rather use this for an actual trash can there is a cool tutorial on the original link for a trash can “scrunchy”
Here is my finished product…
I love how this turned out – it matches my bedspread perfectly! Not to mention, it should be totally Hank proof!
