New things to collect... Tins & boxes

Anyone else interested in collecting tins and boxes? Nothing like having funky tins and boxes for storage!

I grabbed this 'cake' tin from the Gibsons Recycling Depot awhile back for $1.50. I'll be leaving it as is since it's gorgeous - copper and white with a lovely script.

Would be fun to make a cake for a party and bring it using this tin!

I was 'gifted' these old storage tins last weekend that I want to update. I have 5 tins - 2 large tins, 2 medium tins and 1 small tin. Dare I upcycle these? I could leave them as is or thought of using some chrome spray paint and then stenciling either text or a design onto the surface.

And then there's the beginnings of a collection of boxes. Both of these are recent thrift store finds and are made in Poland. Love the design on each of them! I'm sure I'll find more funky boxes soon!

Next I'll be painting canvasses today instead of working on furniture. It's pretty wet and miserable out so I'll stay inside making my canvasses pretty!
