Vintage Junky Ring Holder

Let's face it, if you love old tools....

You like them everywhere! 

Thinking about what to do with this adorable little vintage oil can gave me an idea.

 I gave it a good scrubbing to remove any oil residue, 
happily it's great vintage patina stayed true.

First, it needed to be attached to something, I was liking this little scrap of driftwood leftover from another project.

I screwed through the bottom of the wood and through the oil can... then attached them with a screw.


That's it, I was finished!

The perfect little junker to hold my rings.

Sitting by the sink or in the bathroom, 
vintage junk just works everywhere!

  1. You are so inventive with your upcycling. That looks great! Am now wondering if my Dad has an old oil can lurking in his shed that I can half-inch!

  2. Pretty well done! I love all your upcycling ideas Susan:)

  3. I love this idea! I take my wedding ring off whenever I am going to get my hands messy. I need some thing like this so it doesn't fall down the drain. I found you via Home Stories.

  4. Perfect! I definitely need something like that near my kitchen sink. Especially when I'm making meatloaf and forget to take off my rings. LOL!


  5. Great Idea...I have 3 of these oil cans in my garage...may just have to do a little project this weekend:)

  6. I love using oil cans in projects....just love the way they look. This was a great project, something I will definitely be doing!

  7. I have one and never ever, like most of your creative ideas I love, would have thought to use mine as a ring holder.
