I am setting this post to automatically post in a few hours and I am not telling you what time it is that I am actually writing this. The important part is that I completed my Pinterest Challenge!!!
to make over my trash can…
I did a slightly different scale. But, what do you think?
The taper of the trash can killed me. My evening was filled with about 2 or 3 hours of trying to do it the wrong way (I may have been distracted by some Netflix streaming), followed by one hour of measuring and taping the right way. People, don’t try to ‘eyeball’ chevrons. Trust me.
I ended up measuring and marking the points of each angle, using the ribs on the can as my guide to keep everything lined up, trimming the tape even with the ribs as I went along.
So I think it turned out pretty cute and will make a great addition to my vintage collection for my upcoming sale. I just got word that they are sending out the registration info, so I will pass on the dates and info soon!
Go on over to the Pinterest Challenge to see what everyone else came up with!
