Reduce/ Reuse/ Recycle: Paint Cans!

If you've done any painting at home before, chances are you probably have a few old paint cans kicking around- with just a drop or two of paint left for touch ups- and are taking up a lot of room! Transfer that bit of usable paint out into smaller, airtight containers (baby food jars),  and consider one of these repurposed uses for the empty paint cans:

- drill a few drainage holes and use the can to plant some flowers

- wrap the can in decorative paper, turn it on its side, wall mount it, and use it to hold loose mail or odds and ends.

- drill a hole in the bottom, and hang them from cord lighting as a pendant.
