At the neighborhood drug store, I found these. 3 for $1.00
They are plastic and sort of a whitish clear color.
They are small. I started thinking....if I painted these with the aluminum paint and made little tags, could they look like miniature gym locker baskets? Well, that could be interesting (and for a buck, what have I got to lose?)
So, I spray painted them Aluminum.
Can you tell? Do they look metal to you?
Here are my little miniature aluminum gym baskets.
These could come in handy.
They could hold my Christmas present wrapping supplies like tags, ribbon, embellishments.
They could hold extra forks, knives and spoons at a holiday party.
They could hold office supplies.
Oh my gosh, I'm already thinking of more things I could paint with this stuff;
ornaments, gift tags, containers, pots/planters, signs, and so on.
I'm not sure if the pictures capture it, but it looks like galvanized aluminum.
What would you paint aluminum?
I'm linking up to some of my favorite blog parties in my list above and down below. However, if I start having a difficult time finding this paint because there's been a run on it and the stores are out, I may have to change my mind :)
