First Aid Tin

I painted this large, metal tin white last summer.  I had originally used some Frenchy decals on it, but they peeled off sometime during the winter.  Rather than toss it, I decided to give it a new makeover that I know won't peel off.
I really love vintage first aid finds.  So I decided to make my own.
I printed out an image of the red cross and then used a pencil to outline it onto the front of my tin.  Then I used red paint to fill it in.
Once that was dry, I used sand paper to lightly shabby it up.  There are a couple of oopsies on the bottom right, but I can live with it.

I think this will work nicely for my beach-themed porch!

Ooh, I love it. I have found so many vintage and antique Red Cross finds on Etsy but they are so expensive. This is amazing!!!

Cute project! Hopefully, you won't actually need to use any first aid supplies from it!
