We have a semi-new kitty. We got him a couple months ago. For the most part, I suppose he is a pretty good cat & he likes to cuddle =) But he has a few flaws......One of the major ones being that he learned how to open our bi-fold pantry doors. This just happens to be where we keep his bag of cat food. He will get in there at night & chew as many holes as he can into the bag even when his dish is full. After the first couple times, we finally blocked the door off with a storage tub. Real classy & decorative. And then I saw the 'turn a popcorn tin into a pet food container' on Pinterest & got excited! I didn't take pictures of the steps because I started this a few weeks ago at my parents' house (that's where the tin & spray paint were) & finally finished it today.
1. I spray painted 3-4 coats of metallic champagne gold (the color Mom had in her collection so it was free!) I honestly can't remember how many coats because I took such a long break between start & finish.
2. Once it was dry I used a paw print stencil & brush painted a print on the side & on the lid.
3. Then my wonderful Mom painted HOBBES underneath.
4. Lastly, I spray painted on a clear finish.
Project #2--I would say a 3/4 success =)
