Once I saw this simple DIY project on Young House Love I figured to give it a go.
Being inexpensive and available at Target made it very doable.
It's nice to not have to make a totally separate stop since we're usually at Target getting odds and ends anyway.
And we had the clear sealer on hand already.
I love when I can make something with supplies that we already have.
Before I went ahead, I also saw a similar idea at A Pretty Cool Life. I loved her idea of spraying before dumping the soup so as to not ruin or warp the paper.
I used Krylon Matte Finish to first spray the cans.
Then used the can opener, dumped the soup out, and cleaned the insides.
Then sprayed again.
I think I'd prefer the triple thick gloss spray that Cheryl and Ashley used, but I wanted to try and use what I already had on hand.
I'm thinking that if I happen to get that particular type of sealer, I can always go over the cans with another coat.
