Anyways! I have been wanting to redo the trashcan in my bathroom since I did the remodel way back when.
I've had this blue guy since I first bought my house. He was a dollar at the dollar store and he fits PERFECTLY next to the toilet because of his funky shape.
So I sprayed him down!! The power of white spray paint... knows no bounds.
After a good healthy dose of white spray paint, Sir Trashcan got a good taping off in a chevron pattern. I wanted to do two big solid stripes because a) he's tiny b) that's too much taping for me.
I love to paint so I had some inexpensive craft paint on hand already and got to work painting. I just used a basic sponge brush that I had because it wasn't anything that required any particular artistic finesse.
Sometimes I get over excited... such as when I peeled the tape in haste rather than going slowly to make sure that all the white paint stayed on the trashcan. Damn.
Sebastian's disappointment is entirely evident as he pulled the blanket off the couch to lay on. He's clearly not as thrilled about this trashcan thing as I am.
Ta-da! Sure, it's not perfect. Not all trashcans are really. He looks much cooler though! The yellow and white fits better in my bathroom then the random ice blue did.
See what I mean?
