Tada!  Its almost too pretty to put trash in it, huh?
To attach both knobs at the same time, I used rubber bands and let it dry overnight.

I found this inner portion of an ice cream churn at Goodwill on Friday and knew it would be perfect as a little trashcan to keep beside my vanity.

I just cleaned it up, painted a few lines on it in black and white and used the masking tape distressing trick.  I didn't want it to be too obvious that it's a trashcan so I painted on the "B" to make it a little prettier.  When I was done it still seemed like it needed a little something more (I have a tendency to overdo) so I Gorilla glued on 2 old knobs.  I line my little trashcans with Walmart bags and the knobs are perfect for looping the bag handles over so the bag doesn't sink down into the can.

Kinda looks like a wine chiller too though.  I'm just sayin'.

Super easy little project!  I don't know about you but, with the knobs, it kinda reminds me of Frankenstein.  he,he
