Sometimes the simplest object can be transformed into an elegant and interesting decorative element to any room in your house. One such item is the cube storage bins. These cubes are sold at many craft stores and home decor, and come in a variety of sizes. They are relatively inexpensive, but with a little creativity you can design tailored to suit your style of home decor and make a unique accessory display.
Use your tin buckets as decorative planters, small storage containers or candle lanterns outdoors. Paint your medium or large cube storage bins can with a mean imitation patina. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for applying paint and achieve a patina look. Let the paint dry. Select a potted plant that is slightly smaller than the cube storage bins and place it in the bucket. Cover the top of the dry pot with Spanish moss. Select several cube storage bins of small and medium-sized tin. Use hot fix tape or strips of paper scrapbook of past fashionable silk around the hub, about 1 inch from the top of glue. Press the tape or flat and smooth down paper. Use a dry erase marker to write on the front of the cube using his elegant handwriting.
