While growing up, my parents always taught me to reuse things I had when I could. That being said, my dad had a workshop area filled with old peanut cans, coffee cans, milk bottles and mayonnaise jars. I often used these containers for hair ties, make up and other things over the years. Fast forward to today and one of the best uses for metal coffee cans has been a fun project and has helped me organize my kitchen.
I have been saving empty coffee cans for a while and decided to turn them into storage jars. The cans have sealable lids which makes them great for food, spice or tea storage. They are also great for homemade snacks, and seasoning mixes.
I love using them for what I call, final call storage. I store things that are taking room in my pantry, but due to their low quantity, they could be stored in a smaller containers. These are also nice for rice, cereal and crackers.
First, I emptied the cans of the remaining coffee and washed them out.
Then I measured out decorative adhesive paper to cover the sides of the can and covered the sides.
Then I took some chalkboard labels I had and cut them in half.
Then I covered the cans. This is how they came out. I loved how the repurposed old coffee cans came out.
I used chalkboard labels so that I could change the label from time to time. These are also a nice way to change up your kitchen decor simply (and inexpensively)! Remember, you can use other types of food cans and decorate them too!
