We had this old tin in a box to get rid of, I decided to repurpose it for my best friends birthday. She is the type that likes hand made, one-of-a-kind items.
How I did it: Washed the tin with soap & water. Let it dry completely. Applied an all-purpouse house paint. Then painted details with acrylic craft paints. Sealed it with 2 coats of clear Krylon spray.
