R2D2 Trash Can DiY


I made myself a droid! Well, okay maybe not… but I did paint a garbage can to look like R2D2!


I started with a plain white garbage can with one of the rounded tops so it was the right shape (roughly)


I sprayed the whole thing with a white plastic primer spray paint and then the lid with a silver paint.


Once that was all dry I used a pencil to lightly sketch out where I wanted to paint.


Using regular acrylic paints I painted the blue


Then the silver


And finally black


I know it’s far from perfect, but I’m happy with it!

Also I apologize for any weird sizing of the pictures or anything funky with this post- it’s really hard to post with pictures from my iPhone! (Still no computer)
