This isn't one of those jawdropping, omg, how'd you do that kind of posts but I'm going to post it anyway because this project was cheap, er inexpensive
and is very useful.
I had been hoarding coffee cans and knew they had a higher purpose than sitting in the basement.
We needed a place to put all of our hats, gloves, etc. - things you take off as soon as you walk in the door. First, I spray-painted the cans gold to match our lovely golden radiator. Then my husband riveted them together. (I didn't know how to use the rivet gun.) Then he drilled holes in the side and used some wire to attach the tower of cans to the radiator. This is version2 with the cans angled upward so things won't fall out and you can see what's in them better. Now everyone has their own place to put their "stuff" and I think they look pretty good. It was supposed to be MY project but I think my husband did a wonderful job. He is the king of frugal so these work for us!
and from the side:
What do you think?
