Rustic Recycled Tin Can Organizer

Starting with the sides of an old barrel, some tin cans,
and a couple of screws...

A rustic, recycled organizer is born...
the one sided organizer can sit on a shelf or with a 
hole drilled into the top can hang on the wall.

The perfect handle is built into the barrel sides...

The double sided organizer is great for school
or craft supplies and can sit out on the table for 
all to reach.

The perfect rustic solution for the homework center.

Or how about one of them as the ever 
popular silverware caddy.



  1. That is awesome! I need to make one for my cutlery - great idea ;-)

  2. Okay, I vote for the silverware organizer! LOL! You're amazing, lady! I wold have never thought of that even if they had been propped up next to each other. I'm going to bed now........and pray for some talent.

  3. Great idea! Making one with two big cans for my husbands tools for projects outside of the barn. Thanks

  4. And adding the little number tag is the frosting.


  5. Great idea for re-using cans. I can see my making these for my garden workbench next year. I'm popping over from Sew Darn Crafty.

  6. how fun Susan! love your organizer. are YOU as organized as you seem? my stuff is all over my house!


  7. Is there just the one screw in each can? Are they stabilized at the bottom also, and if so, how?
