I have a collection of baby formula tins in my cupboard that I have kept, hoping there is something useful I can do with them. They’re great quality tins with gold plastic lids, but they aren’t airtight, so I can’t store food in them. They also have branding on them, so I always planned to paint them, but wasn’t sure what colour or design to use, until now…
Why we love them:
- These colours look great together. White and gold look great for interiors, whilst the turquoise tones are bright and fresh for outside.
- Stripes are a timeless pattern, and conveniently already marked on the tins! You could also use tape to ensure neat, clean lines.
- You could apply this technique to any type of tin can – large or small.
- I would also use these as storage tins for pens, stationery, sewing acessories such as cotton reels and other haberdashery.
