This summer is a beautiful mess. Last night I started working on my latest DIY. I discovered these vintage can openers thrifting last week (searching for the perfect father's day gift). I scored a vintage Coors one for my dad:) Dad--if you want it painted, tell me.
And when I found the hidden treasure box of them--Lone Star, Lucky Lager, Hamm's, even Buckeye Brew--I had to think of something to do with them. I found most of mine for 50-cents each (some were between $1-$3, depending on the lager).
Such sweetness is paint.
First, you want to find your can openers/bottle openers.
Then you want to paint a thick base coat color--let it dry between each layer so it doesn't clump up. I suggest 3 or 4 coats. I used acrylic paints.
Then paint your sweet, personal, beautiful designs. I'm going to seal them with a glossy glaze when they are all complete and dry. I just love them.
