Photos: Making a Gold Metallic Waste Basket

 I got this popcorn bucket before the holidays and I was going to throw it away, but it does seem like a terrible waste of metal. So I had the idea of making it a trash can as Daisy wanted one for the office room. Granted having Santa Claus here year round seems rather dumb, however...
 I still had a bunch of Krylon gold metallic spray paint from spraying the knobs and handles from the bathroom vanities. 
So I put it on a tarp in the garage and sprayed away. Took me about two tries as I missed about two spots on the first spray.  
So here it sits, if you really look closely at it you can still see a bit of the "holiday cheer" shapes despite the gold coloring, because I'm not bending metal. Besides when it has a plastic bag you can't see it anyway.
