Popcorn Tin to Pet Food Canister

A big bag of pet food can be quite the eyesore in your home, and Ballard Designs offers the perfect solution with their stylish food storage containers. However, at $55-$59 a piece, Erin from Elizabeth Joan Designs says you might as well just keep the food in the bag or make your own stylish pet food bin. Of course, crafty sister Erin chose the latter of the two! She hit up the thrift store for a popcorn tin and updated it with some horizontal painted stripes. The canister even has Erin’s Golden Retriever’s seal of approval, so you know it must be pretty awesome {Wink}!

I absolutely love how they came out and cannot believe the difference they make!
