This aluminium container is an old one. I found it along with the trunk mentioned in my previous post (http://www.dianacrastainteriors.blogspot.in/2012/11/an-old-iron-trunk-gets-make-over.html).
So I started by putting metal primer first since it was a very old piece. And then painted it. Once the paint dried I decoupaged it with a sunflower cutting taken from a paper napkin sheet.
I left it to dry for about 2 hours and then spray painted it with a tooth-brush...
So once it's done you can use it the way you want to...Here I have used it as a flower vase!
The stool below is also an old wooden one...painted it to give a warm look...!!
Magazine stand/ stool/ container/ case...!!...as u take it... ;)
You can use it to stack your books or diaries!!
Have different ideas of using it...do share with me...!!
