A few pieces of sandpaper, 2 cans of paint, and some vinyl letters and I have some "new" storage cans.

I took these pictures at noon (really bright out) in person the cans are a matte black with primer grey lettering.

Looks good! Any "Before" pics would probably make them look even better.

Thanks for the idea. What kind of paint did you use?

Looks nice. Did you get into all the nooks and crannies with the sandpaper? Or did you mostly just rough it up for a better base?
