Buttons for the trash can!

Buttons, Buttons, Buttons who doesn't love them!
Hello to Everyone, I hope this finds you well and happy!
I am finally working on my sewing room!  Soon to share my vintage hankie curtains, and sewing table skirt!  So happy they are finished.  The skirt was a challenge!   Quite please with them, check back for that post.  I so want to get this room project done!.  If only my " to do " list was not soooo long! 
Back to the buttons!
I was looking at my very needed trash can and although I like the black metal can, it needed something?   Once you start decorating a room, you know there is no stopping the brain!  Well, a few ideas came to me, decoupage scraps on it, shabby it with paint, but buttons came to me, and buttons were just what I did!  See below, what do you think?

Very little supplies needed!  Super easy and the hot glue set
so fast with the metal can!

I did spray paint over the black upper and lower can
due to scratches.  I have to admit I did it after gluing on the buttons! Yes,  which meant taping over the buttons!  Am I the only one that does things the hard way???  I get too anxious and excited to do the fun part!

Here she is in her spot!  I just love the buttons, what do you think!

I am working with Window's 8 now and also used my ipad app to do some of this post!  A lot of hair pulling, swearing and wanting to be 21 years old to learn it all , well for a month a least :)
so bare with me!

Take care,

Linking to these great parties:
