painted dollar store storeage containers

Dollar Tree has some really cute plastic storage containers, but their bright color scheme might not match your room.  No problem!  Carrie at Lovely Etc. took some dollar store containers and gave them a faux metal makeover using a technique that involves layering multiple different kinds of paint. The result has a vintage appearance that will blend much more subtly into your decor. [how to make plastic dollar store containers look like metal]
