Photo: Turning a Popcorn Bucket into a Navy Blue Trash Bin

I did a similar project about a year ago. Once I was done with the popcorn in this Christmas bucket, I decided to spray paint it, rather than throw it away. They make good solid trash cans.  
 I had some Krylon spray paint left over from another project. Had plenty to do the can with. It's in high gloss with the color navy blue.  
Here's it when it's done. You can't hide the designs (with ease anyway) but with a trash bag over it, you can't really tell either way.

The bucket looked good in original form too, both nice. Good work Adam.

Looks good, and I like the design showing through.

That is great! Someone else would have saved the bucket as it was originally. So much classier your way!

That's a good upcycle, Adam!

I think the designs add to it.

This turned out really cool!

That looks great. I actually like that you can still see the image. Makes it more interesting.

Such a good idea.

How wonderful is that. Never seen a tin bucket of popcorn!

It looks better this way.

Great way to save it from the landfill, though I kind of like the idea of using it for a seasonal trashcan and leaving it with the pretty picture on the front. My daughter has a puppy one she got for the holiday, so we'll definitely reuse it as a waste bin now too. Thanks for the idea!

I like the designs adding texture to the navy can. Great job of repurposing, Adam!
