by Sha Khezri

Storage does not have to look functional and lifeless, with a little creativity, color and charm you can turn your organizers into fun pieces of art.  Let’s get ready to create a unique DIY tool organizer by upcycling everyday items.  

To complete this project you will need the following materials:

3 Empty vegetable cans

Piece of wood board (6″x 15″)

Paint ( I used Buzz-In P300-6 and Carbon N520-7)

Paint tray

Paint roller

1″ screws

Screw driver

Power drill

Small brush

Step 1: Paint cans

Use a small paint roller to paint your wood board and the outside and inside (if desired) of the cans.

Can exterior:  Buzz-In P300-6, Can interior: Carbon N520-7

Step 2: Drill holes

With a power drill, make a hole on the top part of the cans.

Step 3: Mark and Drill Wood Board

Measure and mark the spots where you’d like to attach the cans to the wood board,  Drill a guide hole in each spot.

Step 4: Attach cans to wood board

Align the two holes and attach cans to the wood board with your 1″ screws.

Step 5: Paint details

Paint and retouch any final details with a small brush.

Step 6: Organize your tools

Give the tools you love to create pretty projects some love. Organize everything together and they’ll be ready for your next DIY project.
