This Time... Last Year
Almost the same time last year, my 11-month nephew had just left, leaving behind a lot of beautiful memories and dozens of baby food containers. Being my thrifty self, I had asked my SIL not to throw those cute Gerber plastic containers. We just washed and kept them aside. I simply wanted to retain the containers with absolutely no idea as to what to do with them. Nothing's new about it, I do this all the time!
A couple of days after my in-laws had left, I pulled out all the plastic containers that I had been collecting - yogurt containers, strawberry trays, cake boxes, baby food containers and a few more plastic boxes, all in varied shapes and sizes.
Here is what I pulled out from a dark deserted shelf in the kitchen.
The plastic containers that would have otherwise gone to the recycle bin, were re-used as planters.
I could not resist adding some designs to the shiny white ones. Grabbed the permanent marker and art-ified some yogurt and Gerber containers
Gerber before and after
While there was not much to do in the Gerber containers except to cover the manufacturing details with the design, the yogurt ones did need some patience. The print on it was scrapped off using a paper knife, to get the plain white surface. The knife however, does leave behind a not-so-smooth surface. Nail paint remover can be another option or just spray-paint the entire thing in desired color!
P.S.- Please let me know if the new look is confusing and unfriendly for you as readers. Thanks!
