First Aid Tin

by - May 12, 2014

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!
