I typically keep all items that can be recycled and use them in some way in my home. I typically don't mind about the appearance of the outside of the container. This idea would certainly bring it all together so that the storage is not only useful but pretty.

I am kicking myself for disposing of those tins that I had accumulated during last Christmas. (cookies, candies and popcorn tins) I could have repurposed them and used them for storage instead of giving them to the thrift store. Well, I will keep them this year and have them for great storage tins next year.

I actually did one like this, but I didn't add the handle just didn't think of it. It worked out great. It turned a rather ugly old tin that didn't "go" with the room at all, into something that looked as if I had bought it especially for that room. I thought about decoupaging or adding a couple of designs, but haven't done that yet.

What a great idea. And yes I have seen some very similar ones at Target. If I can make them like this I will be very happy. They can be colored coordinated to my kitchen so it will have a custom look. I really appreciate this being offered and for free. Now I just need to remember where I stashed my old tins.

Cannot bring myself to throw out tins and then wonder what to do with them - this is ideal when painted they co-ordinate and look as if they began life as storage canisters. Brilliant idea - labels would make it easy to identify contents

I love upcycling! These are awesome.
