Industrial Style Laundry Hamper Makeover

Waste not, want not. That’s pretty much my attitude every time I walk into my neighborhood thrift store, which is pretty often.

Which also means I get into trouble a lot. And trouble is usually in the form of a pile of unfinished projects that have incredible transformations…in my head.

Too bad great ideas without execution don’t usually end up as blog posts, huh?

But this one executed exactly how I imagined! Don’t you just love it when that happens?

Today, I’m joining in with four other super talented blogging friends for a series called Trash to Treasure Transformations. Every 2nd Tuesday of the month, we’ll be transforming an item we found from a thrift store or yard sale. A.K.A. stuff we love doing anyway!

My victim to kick off the transformation fun was this guy:

To be fair, this hamper/trash can/pet food container, whatever you see it as really wasn’t all that hideous. It was pretty cute to begin with. But if you’ve followed this blog for longer than a day, you probably already know that I can never leave well enough alone.

This thing was a little rough on top, but it was nothing a coat of paint couldn’t fix.

I gave it two coats of Annie Sloan Coco, but typical me had to take it a step further and get all industrial style with a stencil.

I used these letter stencils I found in the hardware aisle and some black craft paint to trick it out.

I gave the original knob hole a quick spackling patch and sanding.

After the paint was dry, I swiped on one coat of Annie Sloan Dark Wax. I worked in small sections and left just enough of the wax behind to make it look a bit like wood.

I found this really cool pipe looking handle at Hobby Lobby for 50% off the other week while looking for our bathroom cabinet knobs.

Ta da! I’m so happy how it turned out! I had to take advantage of my new shiplap backdrop for a minute with this one.

Our master bathroom desperately needed a hamper, and this one fits right in. We were just tossing dirty clothes right in the floor beside our cabinet before, and it was not a pretty sight.

It works great with our rustic ladder towel rack too.

What do you think? Does it work? Can you believe this thing was only $9? Using the paint and wax I already had and the stencils and handle I bought, it ended up being about $20 total.

    1. Thanks, Larissa! I LOVE how your sconces turned out too! I’m ready to dive into my in-laws’ old barn to see if I can scrounge up some old farm tools like you found.
